Digital services by and for Swarthmore students

Welcome! We're a collective of student volunteers who maintain digital services for the students, staff, and alumni of Swarthmore College. We offer club mailing lists, a campus directory, a daily digest, and much more. Most services require an SCCS account, available to anyone with an @swarthmore.edu email address.

News and Updates

Server Access from Web
4/3/2024

SCCS hosts a public, high-resource, student-administrated server VM for the Swarthmore community to use. The current VM, robin, runs Fedora Server and can be accessed via SSH at robin.sccs.swarthmore.edu. However, we have also recently opened Web access via Cockpit, allowing users to use a terminal and view stats without needing an SSH client. Head to the site to try it out!

Course Planner Updated for Fall '24

The SCCS Course Planner has been updated for Fall 2024 courses! Get started planning your next Swat semester with a modern tool that's mobile friendly and doesn't require a VPN. Remember to Ctrl+Shift+R to make sure you're on the latest version.

Using the SCCS LanCache
2/29/2024

SCCS has deployed an instance of LanCache, a service that replaces your default DNS servers to redirect game downloads through a faster local server. This allows us to cache terabytes of popular games to provide a much faster download experience. Take advantage of this by setting your default DNS server to 130.58.218.30.
