Computer lab usage

Computer labs at Michigan Tech are designed to provide the campus community a convenient computing resource. The intended use of these machines is based on a one-to-one model; one student should be using only one computer at a time. In the open labs, running intensive processes when away from the computer or monopolizing systems and creating a cluster of lab machines is not to be done.

If you need high-performance computing, please work with your adviser and review the Michigan Tech high-performance computing website. 

Another option when completing course work is remote access to a terminal on a Linux machine running lab software. Michigan Tech IT provides remote access to two servers: and Remote access information is available via normal Secure Shell (SSH) from on- and off-campus machines. 

If you have questions about computer use, please check out the Michigan Tech Computer Use Policy page.
