Bloomberg Terminal Policy

  • Use of this Bloomberg Terminal is for educational purposes only. Commercial use can lead to individual Bloomberg accounts being terminated. Use of this terminal for commercial purposes will result in Bloomberg terminating this service in our Library.
  • Please reserve the Bloomberg Professional Workstation before you begin your session. Otherwise, another person might reserve the terminal and you will be required to give up your seat immediately.
  • You may only reserve the terminal for one hour and only for two consecutive half hour blocks in the same day. If, after that time, another person has not reserved the terminal or arrived to use it, you may continue to use it.
