Getting an AccountΒΆ

Before you can start the clusters you need to register for an account. An account gives you access to both clusters (ShARC and Iceberg). Accounts are availible for staff by emailing

The following categories of students can also have an account with the permission of their supervisors:

  • Research Postgraduates
  • Taught Postgraduates - project work
  • Undergraduates 3rd & 4th year - project work

A student’s supervisor can request an account for the student by emailing


Once you have obtained your username, you need to initialize your password to be the same as your normal password by using the CICS synchronize passwords system.
