BEAR Portal

The BEAR Portal provides web-based access to a range of BEAR services, such as JupyterLab, RStudio, and GUI applications. It also provides access for submitting BlueBEAR compute jobs. The BEAR Portal is only available on campus or using the University Remote Access Service.

Access to the BEAR Portal

There are two steps required in order to gain access to BlueBEAR and these also apply to the BEAR Portal:

  1. being registered on a BEAR project that has access to the BlueBEAR service;
  2. have an active BEAR Linux account.

Once you have an active Linux account, you will be able to log on to BEAR Portal.
