Introduction to SCS Computing

Welcome to the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University!

This portal provides information to help new users get started and gain familiarity with the SCS environment and the services provided by SCS Computing Facilities (SCSCF). In SCSCF, we support the SCS community and SCS-owned computing equipment. We are also happy to act as liaisons to help address any issues you may have that involve computing outside of SCS.

Most departments in the School of Computer Science will provide incoming faculty, staff and Ph.D. students with a desktop or a laptop computer that is supported by SCSCF. You are also welcome to use privately-owned (non-CMU) computers, mobile devices, and other equipment within the SCS environment, but please note that our support for these devices is limited.
