If you require access to the UCT HPC cluster but are not a UCT affiliate you will need a UCT third party account. You must ensure that the option to request a UCT email account is ticked. This email account is only used to login to the service portal to request an HPC account. All correspondence with third party account holders will be via their institutional email address.
Your supervisor, PI or HOD will need to apply on your behalf via your departmental IT liaison.
The IT liaison will capture you as a visiting academic, it is important that your affiliated institutional email address is included in this process.
You can then login to the UCT service portal with your UCT email address and proceed with the HPC application form using your affiliated institutional email address in place of the UCT email address.
