Bloomberg At UConn

In 2012, UConn purchased its first series of Bloomberg terminals for the Storrs campus. After seeing the incredible value that Bloomberg has offered students, UConn decided to expand its Bloomberg presence. We now have Bloomberg terminals within the School of Business at Storrs and in the Business Connections Learning Community at Belden Hall, as well as, the Downtown Hartford GBLC and Stamford campuses.
