Bloomberg Terminal Remote Access

Bloomberg Terminal

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are interested in using the Bloomberg Terminal remotely, must reserve a spot every time you plan to log in. You can view Terminal availability and reserve blocks of time using our online booking calendar.

Reserving your time on the Terminal is required since only one user can log in at a time. Please remember to log off from your account when you are done using the Bloomberg terminal for your allotted time. This ensures that others can use the terminal for their reserved time slot.
