How to gain access

Bath's portfolio of Research Computing environments are open to all academics and doctoral students.

Undergraduate students can also use the environments as part of their final year project. Your departmental champion will discuss your needs and arrange access.

Software packages

A wide range of pre-installed software applications are available on Bath's HPC environments, including Ansys, Caffe, Matlab, R, Python, ParaView, Stata and VASP and many more.

You can also request a new software be set up. Applications which run too slowly on your desktop/laptop can run much quicker on Bath's supercomputers.
