Research Computing Resources

Server resources are available that provide remote access to applications and high performance computing assets in both Windows and Linux environments.  Access is available to faculty, staff, and graduate students.  Access to undergraduates is available when requested by faculty for either research or instructional needs.

We provide two main remote computing environments using Windows and Linux operating systems.  These systems fit a majority of needs.  To find out more about each, use the links below. 

Not sure which one to use?  Check out our Linux or Windows page.

If you find that using shared systems doesn't meet your needs we can work with you to create custom solutions.  We also run systems that support administrative and instructional needs.  Simply contact us to begin the conversation.  Examples of custom systems we've created and support:


  • Rstudio Server
  • JupyterHub
  • Jamulus


  • Joan assistant (IoT device)
  • Uniflow (print server)
  • Networked License Servers
  • FileMaker Server
  • Custom web apps

  • JATOS online study hosting
  • scribit (drawing robot)
  • psiTurk
