Polak building closed, EDSC office in T4-50

Friday, 20 October 2017

The Polak building has been closed and the EDSC is temporarily housed at RSM in the BIC (T4-50). What does this mean for the EDSC and its clients?

Practically it means the Bloomberg Class and the Datalab can't be reached. The EDSC office is now temporarily housed at RSM in the BIC. We can offer individual support and there is access to Datastream, Eikon, MorningStar and SDC JV.

Bloomberg is still an issue. We have one Bloomberg laptop available for individual support and workshops. When not in use this laptop can be borrowed by students during office hours. So we're almost up and running again.

But organizing workshops will be difficult, we are looking for a solution.
