Computer rooms located at Villejuif or Le Kremlin-Bicêtre are available at any
time - day and night. Other computer rooms may have specific schedule depending
on their location. The machines have no hard drive, they boot via the network
using PXE (Preboot Execution Environment).

A [CRI account](accounts.md), without any password, is available at any moment
The login is `epita`. It allows one to quickly log in on a computer, even
without network (if it is already started, obviously). It is strongly
recommended to turn off the computer after using this account to avoid people
from retrieving data by re-logging on it.
