Welcome to the SRCF

The Student-Run Computing Facility (SRCF) exists as a university society to provide useful and flexible computing and network services, for University of Cambridge staff and students of all degrees of ability.

Individuals may join the SRCF as members, which provides user access to our servers. For any groups of people wanting to collaborate, we offer shared group accounts with all the same services.
