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