Biomathematics Computing Support


Accounts and Services

There are a number of different services available here at Biomathematics.

To log on to most of the computers in the department you'll need an account on our Biomathematics Network. This account provides you with file server space, print service, and computer lab use.

You can also have a Biomath email account (i.e. name@biomath.ucla.edu). This email account is for those people who are associated with the UCLA Department of Biomathematics.

Lastly, Mednet also has a VPN system in place. This is for those who wish to gain access to UCLA/School of Medicine/Biomathematics computing resources from off-campus. These resources include but are not limited to medical journals, file servers, web applications, etc.

For access to one or more of these, please fill out the following:
