JupyterHub Disable Culling for a Specific User

I am using my university server. The servers use JupyterHub for managing users etc. My workflow runs for about 10-12 hours. The idle culler shuts down my user notebook server after 2 hours. I contacted the admin of the server. But the admin have no idea how to disable the idle culler. He agreed to help me if I can tell him specifically what to do.

I found this article

But it applies the settings to all users (i think), which is not an option. Is there any way to to disable the idle culling for a specific user?

Thanks In advance. Also I am not familiar with jupyterhub so I apologize in advance if I missed something obvious.

The idle-culler uses the JupyterHub API

You could either modify the idle-culler:

or write your own script that culls idle servers, using some custom logic to exclude users.
