Classroom Guide for Students

Add to a Classroom Project

We provide the instructor (PI of the classroom project) with information on how to get students added to the classroom project. Usually, invites will be sent to new OSC users; existing OSC users will be automatically added to the project if they have an OSC account which matches the email information provided by the PI.

Emergency maintenance in data center Feb 10 2022

OSC will shut down significant portions of the Owens and Pitzer clusters for several hours on Thursday, Feb. 10 to conduct emergency maintenance work on power systems in the data center. Jobs running on impacted nodes will be terminated when this work begins. OSC will issue refunds as needed for any impacted jobs. Additionally, due to reduced capacity on both clusters, queued jobs will experience delays until the maintenance is complete and the scheduler has a chance to clear out any backlog. We apologize for the inconvenience.
