Rose-Hulman Linux Users Group

Why is everything broken?

We're currently working on migrating all of our services to individual virtual machines running on multiple ESXi hosts instead of all of them running on a single bare metal server running Arch Linux. It's taking me a while because I have a lot of homework... Questions, comments, or recommendations? Email me at


We maintain a Wiki for people using Linux at Rose-Hulman along with other general Linux information.


To access our physical machines you have to use our SSL VPN. This will also allow to access on-campus only resources from off campus. Visit the wiki page for information on how to connect.


Nextcloud is an open source and self-hosted alternative to Dropbox which we host for Rose-Hulman Students, Faculty, and Staff to use.

Physical/Virtual Machines

We have a general use Linux machine for people to run stuff on, along with bare metal servers as well as virtual machines that people can request. Visit our Wiki page for updated information on availability and how to get one.
