Bloomberg: Create Account

Union College Bloomberg Terminal

Create Bloomberg Account

For students and faculty attending Union College: Be aware that that If you have already created a Bloomberg account, you cannot create another account at the Schaffer Library.

If you do not have a Bloomberg account set up yet and would like to create one at the Library Bloomberg terminal, please follow the steps below.

Double-click the Bloomberg icon   on the desktop to access Bloomberg.

To create an account:

  1. Start by hitting Enter <GO> to get to the login screen
  2. Click on Create a New Login.  And by the way, Bloomberg will only accept your campus email in the setup process.
  3. Fill out the form to create your own account, including a username and password. Note: You must supply a home phone and an office phone.
  4. When prompted, choose the SMS notification option and keep your cell phone handy.  Bloomberg will text you a log-in authentication code that you will need to complete your account creation
  5. Once you have submitted the form, you will receive a text almost immediately.

Log in with your newly created login information and you are all set!
