Undergraduate groups can now access Flux, U-M’s shared computing cluster, at no cost under the new Flux For Undergraduates program from Advanced Research Computing (ARC).

Flux For Undergraduates aims to provide undergraduates with experience in high performance computing and access to computational resources for their projects; it is not meant for faculty-led research. Jobs submitted underFlux For Undergraduates will run only when unused cycles are available.

Student groups can also purchase Flux allocations for jobs that are higher priority or time constrained; those allocations can also work in conjunction with the free Flux For Undergraduates jobs.

Undergraduate groups must have a faculty sponsor to be eligible for Flux For Undergraduates. For more information, please email To request time under Flux For Undergraduates, fill out the application form.
