Welcome guest user to the Research Computing Center.


In order to access the HPC and other RCC resources from off-campus, you will need a sponsored guest FSUID. Here is how to obtain one:

  1. Select a sponsor that is a current FSU Faculty member. If you don't know who you want to sponsor you, you can find a list of eligible sponsors on the website for the department that you are collaborating with.
  2. Submit a request to the FSU Service Center, with the following information:
    • Your selected faculty sponsor's name and department (if you know your sponsor's FSUID, include that too, but it is not strictly necessary)
    • Your name and email address
    • Language indicating that you need to access to the VPN in order to gain access to the HPC and/or RCC storage
  3. You should receive a follow-up email once the sponsor has approved your request (this can take up to several days). Follow the instructions provided by the ITS Service Desk to setup your guest FSUID.
  4. Once you have obtained your FSUID and set the password, you can login and setup your RCC system account.
