Login Service

The Login Service provides a set of Linux machines, the Login Pool, to which members of the U-M community can connect remotely. Reach these machines by connecting to:


using SSH (secure shell). You use this single machine name as you log in, and your connection will be routed to whichever machine is available at that moment.

The Login Service is part of the standard computing services. Most U-M students, faculty and staff are subscribed to the standard computing services automatically.

Do you need to run computationally intensive or long-running programs? See if your usage might be appropriate for our Statistics and Computation Service.
