Transitioning Back to Campus
RCS staff are now working in the office and remotely. For help or to make an appointment, please send email to help@scc.bu.edu.

Now that the BU community needs to work off-campus, this page contains some guidelines to help you have as productive and seamless an experience as possible. The good news is that you are already using the Shared Computing Cluster (SCC) remotely (see the minor VPN caveat below) and RCS staff will continue to answer your tickets as usual.

Please see the general BU and IS&T guidelines and instructions

VPN versus working “On-campus”

For using the SCC, being “on-campus” or using the VPN is only required if you wish to directly connect to scc4.bu.edu via ssh. As of Sunday, March 22, it is no longer needed in order to connect to scc-ondemand.bu.edu
