Bloomberg Terminal Remote Access

Bloomberg Terminal

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are interested in using the Bloomberg Terminal remotely, please first contact the Bloomberg Research Consultants at bloomberg@union.edu to schedule time and get added to the Terminal remote access schedule.

This is because remote access is only one user at a time, and incoming users can kick current users off the Terminal: if User A logs in while the Terminal is being used by User B, User A will see a warning that s/he is logging into a Terminal that is currently being used. User A will have the option to kick User B off or try again later. If you have been kicked off the Terminal, this means a new user has logged in.
