Using One Lab Computer at a Time

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 the Michigan Tech high performance computing site.  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: guardian.it.mtu.edu and colossus.it.mtu.edu. 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 Michigan Tech Computer Use Policy page.
