About Fisher's Bloomberg Terminals

You can find several Bloomberg Terminals in the Parkes Trading Lab in the School of Business, and one on the main floor of Lavery Library. Remote access is available during COVID-19, so students can access a Bloomberg Terminal from off campus.

Remote/Off-Campus Access

If the students already have an account they will be able to use the remote access portal immediately. Also, if students register for Bloomberg in the lab, they will also be able to then use the remote portal access without verification. All other students will have to create a Bloomberg for Education account and a faculty member will then need to verify they are a current student before they are able to use the remote online portal to Bloomberg.

Please follow these instructions:
