Bloomberg: Bloomberg at Fordham

Where to Find Bloomberg at Fordham

Fordham's Bloomberg workstations can be found in multiple locations:

  • the Trading Room on the first floor of Hughes Hall on the Rose Hill campus
  • the Trading Room in 140 West 62nd Street of the Lincoln Center campus
  • the Reference Room on the first floor of the Walsh Library on the Rose Hill campus.

There is only one Bloomberg workstation in Walsh Library.  There are multiple Bloomberg workstations in each of the Trading Rooms.  Appointments are not required. Priority is always given to Gabelli students and faculty.  In order to provide access to all researchers, please limit your time during high demand hours.
