The MIT EECS Education Computing Facility

An Introduction to ECF
The ECF Computer Cluster
The ECF cluster is a private computer cluster on the third floor of building 38, and contains some Athena machines and now mostly HP Snakes. The ECF cluster is available to those students taking classes that need the facilities. The combination to the cluster is available by asking your recitation instructor or TA; we do not provide the combination via phone or email. The combination is generally changed once a term around registration day.
