Can I work from home? Can I connect to the university's computer?

You will need a SSH software (Secure-Shell). Most of Unix-based operating systems include this by default, and by that I am saying that if you use pretty much any distribution of Linux or MacOS-X.. yes, you are covered!

To connect you use the following command:

ssh USER@csc.cpsc.ucalgary.ca


  • USER is your CPSC account

Windows people, I did not forget about you. Myself, I have installed Putty for SSH on my windows partition, but you can find other softwares for the same purpose. If you want to try that one, go to the Putty Download Page.
