All University of Chicago faculty and staff researchers eligible to be a grant Principal Investigator (PI) are eligible to obtain a RCC account by completing a PI Account Request. See Principal Investigator Eligibility for information about the University’s policy concerning PI eligibility.

A PI account enables a user to log into RCC systems; apply for allocations of RCC resources and grant access to other users; and delegate responsibilities to collaborators at the University of Chicago and elsewhere. 

Users who are ineligible for a PI account may be given access to RCC resources through a PI. Such users should complete a General User Account Request and identify the sponsoring PI, who will be asked to approve the request before an account is created. General Users are ineligible to apply directly for allocations of resources or grant access to other users. 

Use of RCC systems is governed by the RCC User Policy.  Please contact us at help@rcc.uchicago.edu for questions.
