Welcome to University Research Computing

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte University Research Computing (URC) Group was established in 2003 to promote research and teaching on campus through integrating leading-edge high performance computing (HPC) and visualization for the faculty, staff and students of UNC Charlotte.

URC is one of several support groups within Information & Technology Services (ITS). Our mission is to support the unique computing needs of UNC Charlotte's diverse community of research faculty by developing shared computing facilities and offering specialized services that would be difficult for individual research groups or departments to provide internally.

URC provides consulting and assistance to campus researchers with experimental software and/or hardware needs. We also provide training in parallel computing (as used at the facility) and administration for local high performance systems. URC serves as a liaison between various teams that are engaged in research. We work to support, configure and port applications to URC resources.
