CEDC computer labs are available for remote login to students enrolled in Engineering courses only. This provides access to a myriad of engineering software applications, including ones that cannot be installed on student laptops. Please reference the College Software webpage to find out which software you can install at home and which you must remote into the labs to use.

WARNING: All data on these computers is reset upon logoff. Please be sure to backup to another location, such as Microsoft OneDrive.

Students enrolled in many Computer Science courses at CU Denver will be asked to remotely use CSEGrid. CSEGrid is a clustered Linux server environment designed for students to compile and submit code for programming assignments. The same environment is used by instructors to test students’ submitted code to ensure a homogeneous compiling and coding environment.

  1. While off campus, connect to the campus VPN first. While on campus, no VPN is necessary.
    1. Information on installing and connecting to the campus VPN can be found here: https://ucdenver.edu/vpn
  2. Open an SSH client (we recommend Putty for Windows, Mac and Linux can both use the built-in Terminal).
  3. In the SSH client, connect to the address: csegrid.ucdenver.pvt
    1. The full command for Mac/Linux is:
      ssh csegrid.ucdenver.pvt

    1. NOTE: Your email address will NOT work. If you don't know your username, contact us and we can help!
  5. To transfer files, you will need to use a Secure FTP (SFTP) client. For Windows, we recommend WinSCP. For Mac, we recommend CyberDuck.
