Welcome to the Computer Science Support Wiki!

This Wiki has information on nearly everything we do - all the computing services and policies provided by the UVa Computer Science Department (not ITS). There are also answers to some of the most common support requests we receive. If you do not find your answer here, please send mail to root.

Frequently Asked Questions & Common Requests

Below are answers to a number of our most frequently asked questions and common requests. You may often find the answer to your question here rather than waiting on a response to a request ticket.

Accounts

Who gets an account and for how long?

The department issues accounts which grant access to all departmental resources - network, printing, clusters, disk storage, etc. - in keeping with our shared infrastructure model. An account is a single point of authorization for everything, and are generally restricted to those who need access to research and administrative resources in the CS Department. These are not generally issued for instructional support.

Faculty

CS & CPE Graduate Students

Undergraduates & Others

We also issue accounts to Undergraduate Students, non-CS Faculty & Grad Students and non-UVa Collaborators - anyone actively working with a CS faculty member in some research (non-instructional) capacity, granting access to all departmental resources.

These accounts are housed on the sponsoring faculty member's disk storage and will be maintained as long as the sponsor requests it. Accounts for access to instructional equipment (the Olsson 001 and Rice 340 labs, the lab unix cluster) are issued for courses each semester based on course rolls as provided by your instructor.

If you are working with a CS faculty member in any capacity beyond being enrolled in a course, and wish to have an account, please have the faculty member send mail to root@cs.virginia.edu requesting the account.

Systems Overview

The CS department provides a comprehensive computing infrastructure for department members and affiliates in addition to the resources provided for the entire university by ITS.
