Please be respectful to your fellow researchers by complying with the following guidelines:
• Limit your use to one hour at a time
• Do not leave the program open when it is not in use

Students and faculty that do not have an existing Bloomberg Terminal login can request a Bloomberg username and password on the Bloomberg for Education portal. This is a two-part process that requires new users to register on the Bloomberg for Education Portal and create a Bloomberg Terminal Login. These are two separate platforms with separate credentials.
Part 1: Create a learner account on the Bloomberg Education Portal
You will see the following message:
Your account is currently associated with: Yale University. A faculty member at your academic institution must authorize this account before you are able to create a Bloomberg Terminal login. Please refer to your school's guidelines on how to notify a faculty member of your interest in access to a Bloomberg Terminal. The Bloomberg for Education support team cannot authorize accounts for access to Bloomberg Terminals.
You do not have to notify a faculty member for access. Your request will be reviewed within 1-2 business days, and you can expect to receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org to notify you that you have been authorized for a Bloomberg Terminal Login.
Part 2: Create a Bloomberg Terminal Account
