There are currently Bloomberg Labs at Moorgate available to students in the Business School who use Bloomberg as part of their course.

These are located in Room MG1-11 - please contact your tutor for details about access to these Labs. Moorgate is open 8am-9pm Monday-Saturday in term-time.

London Metropolitan University is one of only a few Universities in the UK to offer direct use of Bloomberg data, information and analytics. In addition to offering financial data including company and market information, Bloomberg is one of the major providers of economic and business news and also has its own TV and radio channel. It also is a source of information on countries, international organisations and prominent individuals. It features a convenient interface and a unique interactive help chat window.

- If you can’t find what you need you can press the Help button on the keyboard twice.  This will bring up a chat screen into which you can type what you're looking for.  A Bloomberg advisor will respond.  They may give you instructions on screen or they may phone you on your mobile phone. They will respond to you very quickly – the service is available 24-7.
