Getting Started

The High Performance Computing Service support model focuses on providing one-on-one interpersonal assistance as much as possible in order to meet the unique and complex needs of each researcher. Direct user support is provided by “facilitators” who are employed by individual schools/colleges, and specialize in assisting particular types of research. The facilitators also work with each other as part of the support group in order to maximize the economic benefits of providing a centralized Computing service.

Prior to using the clusters or grid, each new user receives training via our courses or workshops, or self-study followed by a one-on-one orientation.

Access to standalone development servers is typically granted to UWM researchers upon request with no training required.

Requesting Access

Faculty Research Computing resources, such as the Avi and Mortimer HPC clusters, are available to UWM faculty and their assistants in participating schools/colleges for grant-related research.

Educational Research Computing resources, such as the Peregrine HPC cluster, are available to UWM students for course work, thesis, and independent research projects.

The Meadows HTC grid is available to all UWM students and researchers.

Access to the High Performance Computing service can be requested using the form below. A facilitator will contact you, assess your needs and skill level, and help you get started.
