Account Activation

View in Confluence Edit Page Log In Log Out


The cluster is available to all members (staff and students) with a valid Campus Account of the University of Bern. The cluster is meant to be used for research or to fulfill tasks related to the University of Bern. Before you can use this service we have to activate your Campus Account for UBELIX. This page describes the procedure to activate your Campus Account for usage in UBELIX.

Request for Activation

To request the activation of your Campus Account, please send an email to grid-support@id.unibe.ch including:

  • a brief description of what you want to use the cluster for
  • your Campus Account username

Students must additionally provide:

  • the name of their faculty (e.g. Faculty of Science)
  • the name of the institute (e.g. Mathematical Institute)
  • if available, the name of the research group (e.g. Numerical Analysis)

If you possess multiple Campus Accounts (staff and student) use your staff account since this one is more specific. As soon as we get your email we will activate your account for UBELIX. Once activated, you will receive a confirmation email containing initial instructions.

You cannot choose a new username for UBELIX. The username/password combination will be the same as for your Campus Account that you also use to access other services provided by the University of Bern (e.g: email, Ilias).

UBELIX for External Researchers

If you do not have a Campus Account of the University of Bern, but you need access to the cluster for your cooperative scientific research with an UniBE institute, the account manager of this institute has to request a Campus Account from the IT department of the University of Bern. Please ask your coworker at the institute to arrange this for you.

Mailing List

The official channel for informing the UBELIX community about upcoming events (e.g. maintenance) and other important news is our mailing list. Sign up to receive information on what's going on on the cluster:
