To use Bloomberg if you already have a Bloomberg username and password (set up at Brunel - not a previous institution), please do the following:

  1. Book access to a Bloomberg terminal. You can book up to three hours a day, up to a week in advance 
  2. Check in, following the instructions in the booking email you will receive, to confirm that you are making use of your booking. You can check in up to 30 minutes before your booking time starts. If you do not check in by 30 minutes after your booking has started, the booking will be cancelled. We will get in touch with people who regularly don't check in to ensure you understand the importance of making use of the booking system
  3. Go to https://bba.bloomberg.net
  4. Enter your Bloomberg username and password
  5. A verification code will be sent to your Brunel email or the phone number you entered when registering for Bloomberg. Enter this code
  6. Click the down arrow to the right of the “Launch” button and select “Launch within the browser”
  7. You’ll then have access to Bloomberg

Ignore all Citrix warning messages. Citrix is not necessary for access to Bloomberg.
