What is Bloomberg?

Bloomberg is a platform (Terminal) which provides access to live financial, currencies, and commodities data, along with a wide range of news article, reports, and information. The service can only be accessed through the Bloomberg Terminals on campus.

Where can I access the Bloomberg Terminals?

The Bloomberg Terminals are located in PC Lab 1 in the Computer Centre at the Egham Campus. This room is open to Undergraduate and Post Graduate Taught students between 08:00-20:00 Monday to Friday. Staff and Post Graduate Researchers can access the room 24 hours a day between Monday and Friday. Please be aware it is sometimes used for teaching. Outside of teaching hours and during vacation periods the room may require college card swipe access.

Getting help using the Bloomberg Terminals

Bloomberg provide a short guide for getting started on the Bloomberg Terminals.

There are more detailed video guides available on the Library’s Moodle page.

The library sometimes runs training sessions on how to use the Terminals, we will directly email you to advertise when these are running. You can also contact your subjects Information Consultant if you have any questions.

Bloomberg Market Concepts

The Bloomberg Market Concepts course is an industry recognised qualification in using the Bloomberg Terminals. Please use your Royal Holloway email address to sign up to the course for free. The course can take around 10 hours to finish but it will save your progress as you complete different sections, so you don’t have to complete it in one go. 

Accessing resources off campus

To access our resources off-campus, you can use Royal Holloway's VPN, which will simulate on-campus access.

If you are not using Royal Holloway's VPN, you may be asked for a login. In this instance you can use your College username and password (which you normally use to access Moodle).
