Public Computing

Here are options for accessing a public computer:

For more information on public computing, see the section on Public Computers and Technology .

Group Study Rooms (GSRs)

  • Wharton's Group Study Rooms (GSRs) are available for use. Please reserve them in advance using the GSR Reservation system.

Bloomberg Terminals

During the current extended campus restrictions, Lippincott  Library has been providing students with remote access to Bloomberg terminal services on request. This service will be available through the end of December 2021. 

The physical terminals for Bloomberg service that are located in JMHH will therefore remain offline for the time being, but will be returned to service in January 2022.
