MUGrid is a collection of computing resources for computational science and engineering research at Marquette University. It consists of several resources at Marquette University, either centrally managed by the university or individually maintained by individual research labs.

Centrally managed resources

The Père cluster is a 1024-core HPC system built with HP blades. The cluster is named in honor of Père Marquette, the Jesuit explorer and namesake of our university.

The Père cluster is located in second floor of Cudahy Hall. All faculty and students can access Père and ask for technical support without cost.

If you would like to apply an account on Père, please submit an account request form.

If you are seeking advice or technical support on using Père for your research project, please contact ITS Research Computing Support or email   

Resources at Research Labs

Marquette Distributed Condor Pool (Retired)

MUGrid originally also included a distributed Condor pool containing over 500 cores. These cores are distributed throughout the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, the Marquette Bioinformatics Grid (MBiG), the Library and the College of Engineering.

Campus Grids

Campus grids link together computing resources at an institution to support research and collaboration. A goal of campus grids is to provide a seamless workflow from data collection to analysis and dissemination of results. The campus grid is an essential component of discovery in the 21st Century.
