Update on financial workstations at HSSL

For those of you looking to use the financial workstations at HSSL, here is how things currently stand:

  • We ended up moving all the workstations to their new location, Room M3-53B (3rd floor, McLennan), a room that we are now calling the Business Lab.
  • Currently, only 1 Bloomberg terminal and the Datastream workstation are operational.
  • The remaining workstations should be operational by Tuesday, June 20.
  • I’ll post a note here once everything is running normally.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thank you for your patience as we work to get this new space ready for you!

Financial workstations unavailable June 13-15

Friday, June 16: Update on financial workstations at HSSL

Due to the installation of new desks on the 2nd floor of McLennan, the financial workstations in this area will be temporarily unavailable for most of June 13-15.

The following applications with be unavailable during this time: Bloomberg, Datastream, Morningstar, and SDC Platinum.

We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause.


I should also mention that later this summer we will be moving these workstations to a new location, a room on the 3rd floor of McLennan!

This room will provide a dedicated space for people working on financial data assignments, and will allow small groups to work together without disrupting the students studying nearby.

The exact date of this move has not yet been determined, but we are hoping to limit the downtime to a single day. I’ll post an update here once we know the date.

If you have any questions or concerns about this new space, please let me know (edward.bilodeau@mcgill.ca).
