National HPC Service

The National HPC Service (NS) is the primary mechanism through which researchers gain access to ICHEC general-purpose computing resources. These resources are available to all researchers based in Irish third-level institutions, including undergraduate students, PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and other academic staff. 

How do I access HPC?

First, you should register for an ICHEC account.

Next, you can:

  • Click here to learn about accessing HPC.
  • Join an existing National HPC Service project already granted to someone else (who must approve your application to join his/her project via the web portal).
  • Apply for your own National Service Class Project according to your requirements. 
  • Apply for condominium access via your local Contact Point (if applicable).

As always, if you have any questions you can contact us at
