Founding Members

The MGHPCC is operated as a joint venture between its founding members Boston University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University, and the University of Massachusetts. If you are affiliated with one of these institutions and wish to explore what resources are available for your use at the MGHPCC, you can access your institution’s research computing portal in the table below.

The MGHPCC is open for use by any research organization. If you are not at one of the five founding universities please visit out Shared Resources page to find what other options are available for using resources at the MGHPCC.

 partners-icon-bu The Research Computing Services group (RCS) at Boston University administers advanced, multiprocessor supercomputing systems for research computing. These systems are available to all University faculty, their students, and their collaborators for research and for educational use in courses related to computational science.
