SRCC Users Slack Workspace

The Stanford Research Computing Center (SRCC) Users Slack Workspace ( has been created to keep our users updated with the latest news on the SRCC systems that they use (Oak, Sherlock, SCG, Nero, Farmshare, etc.), as well as to facilitate communication between users of SRCC systems.

While SRCC staff may monitor these channels, please keep in mind that the best way to get support is to email us at 

You do not need to join our SRCC Users workspace to join the various SRCC channels (see below), as those channels are made available Stanford grid-wide. You may join SRCC channels from any workspace on the Stanford-grid. However, you are welcome to join our SRCC workspace using the following steps:

If you have used the Stanford Slack Grid before, here is what to do:

  1. Browse to If you see a green button that says “Sign in with Stanford”, click on it.
  2. Log in through Stanford Login, with your SUNetID and password.
  3. The next page will say “Workspaces at Stanford University”. In the search box, type srcc  or srcc users and press Enter. You should see one result, which is our workspace “SRCC Users”.
  4. Click on “View Details”, and then “Join”.

Once you have finished the join process, you do not need to do it again. In the future, you will be able to access the SRCC Slack with the direct link:
