Welcome to the Information Technology Services, Research Computing Main Page at Northeastern University.

We provide high-end research computing resources to all users – Faculty, Students, Staff, Researchers, Visiting Scholars and Partners at Northeastern University. These resources include centralized high performance computing (HPC) clusters and storage, visualization, software, high-level technical and scientific user support, education and training. Researchers can leverage these for both HPC and non-HPC research computing use, development and funding requirements.

Use the links in the menu on the right to learn about, get access to, and browse detailed usage information of Northeastern University Research Computing resources.
