Request an Account

All accounts are associated with a Project that summarizes the research for which CARC resources will be used.  A given PI (principal investigator, typically a faculty member), may have more than one Project active concurrently.  To request CARC machine accounts, follow these steps.

Step 1.  Complete the form below.  When prompted for the Project ID, search for it under the PI’s name.  Request accounts for machines appropriate to your code/computational problem (see guidelines on which machines to request" on the Project page).

Step 2.  Once you have applied for an account, an automated message will be sent to the Project PI asking that they confirm that the account request is legitimate.  Once they have replied to that message, the account will be created automatically.

Step 3.  You will receive an email asking that you pick up your login and password information at CARC in person.   A UNM ID is required.  Login/password information can be picked up at the Center front desk, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  In cases where a user is accessing CARC remotely (e.g. from a partner institution) please email help@carc.unm.edu to request special arrangements.
