isginf facilitates access to a shares of GPU nodes on the Euler cluster for courses.

Student Share

The student share currently consists of none nodes with a total of 72 GPUs and 20TB fast storage. Usage of these nodes is restricted to courses that require GPU computing. All users have access to Euler, for CPU based computing in classes the guest access is enough.


Professors or head TAs who need access to the share for a course can contact our service desk.

Access is managed through a group for each course, only members of a course group can log in. The group can be managed by the head TA of the course as well as the ITC. With a list of student ETH email addresses isginf can initially set up a group at semester start.

For large classes students may need to be grouped in teams because there are not enough resources available.


For students the usage rules are as follows:

  • Only one concurrent job on one GPU is possible per user.
  • If students are grouped in teams, only one member of the team may submit a job at a time. For large classes there are not enough GPUs for each user, only for each team.
  • At the end of a class you will lose access to the cluster and your home directory and will be deleted. Please be sure to copy away all files you want to keep.

For collaboration among team members we offer to provide GitLab for courses.

Remove Access

The login nodes are not reachable from the internet. Please use VNC or our jump host to log in from home.


All documentation on the cluster itself is maintained by ITS and can be found on their scientific computing wiki.

Log in via ssh with your ETH user name to to get started.
