Top Bloomberg FAQs

Q: Can I access Bloomberg remotely / virtually?
A: No. Bloomberg must be used at the terminal, on-site. The remote access option for all Bloomberg clients (academic and corporate), necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic, ended on June 30, 2022.

Q: My terminal account or password seems to have expired. How do I reset it?
A: Inactivity for 90 days turns your account off, and requires a password reset. Call Bloomberg Customer support to reset your password: US East Coast: 212-318-2000. US West Coast: 415-912-2960. Shanghai: +86-21-6104-3000. Abu Dhabi: +971-4-364-1000.
