New Cluster Reservation & Software Request Process Begins Jan. 21

(US Eastern Time)
DAY: Friday
DATE: January 18

To make cluster reservations consistent with Registrar-controlled classroom reservations, beginning January 21, Clusters Services will follow a new process for reserving Computing Services-operated clusters and requesting software installation on cluster machines, unix.andrew and Virtual Andrew.

The new reservation process will be handled through SpaceQuest (25Live), the tool used to reserve Registrar-controlled classrooms and many other Pittsburgh campus spaces.

To submit a cluster reservation under the new process, follow the steps below. We recommend using the Mozilla Firefox browser.

  • Log in with your Andrew userID and password.
  • Select the “Event Creation and Editing” tab and follow the steps within the wizard to reserve your cluster or software.  

Further details on the cluster reservations process are available at
