Linux Clients on the CS Undergrad Net

The following is a list of Linux machines available for students, faculty, researchers, or staff. These Linux machines can be accessed remotely via ssh, scp or VNC.

If you're working remotely, although you are welcome to log into any of our Linux clients, it's recommended that you try first, as it can handle more concurrent use than any of the lab machines. All of the systems are identically configured, however, so anything you can do on one of them can be done on all of the others, too.


  • All Ugrad Net systems end with as in,
  • Accounts, mail, web, and home directories on the Ugrad Net machines are different than those on the Grad systems.
  • Ugrad Net linux clients have disk quotas on the Ugrad home directories.
  • If you are unable to reach one of the systems below, please first see if it is part of an outage by visiting our Notices page, otherwise, please contact
  • These Linux clients are primarily used for educational (coursework) purposes. Therefore, since you are sharing these systems (CPU, memory, etc.) with other users, please make sure that you do not overload the processors on these systems. When your are completed running your processes, please make sure you stop those processes.
