Why use the NYTimes.com Pass to read The New York Times online?
The New York Times requires a paid subscription for full access to its website NYTimes.com; unsubscribed visitors may only read up to 10 free articles per month. The NYTimes.com Pass gives you unlimited access to all content on the site, except for a limited number of articles you can view from 1923 to 1980.
I already have a Times digital subscription, which gives me unlimited access to NYTimes.com. What should I do?
If you have an existing digital subscription, you are not eligible to activate an NYTimes.com Pass. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your options.
What are the restrictions?
You need to be connected to your institution’s network to activate the NYTimes.com Pass. At this time, access to articles from 1923 to 1980 is limited to five articles per day.
Can I access The Times from off-campus?
All NYTimes.com Passes provide full access to NYT content anywhere and from any device. Please see New York Times Pass Activation and Log In Instructions to register as first time or existing user.
Can I access The Times from my mobile device?
All NYTimes.com Passes provide full access to NYT apps; visit nytimes.com/mobile to download. Pass holders can also access NYTimes.com and INYT.com on any device (computer, smartphone, or tablet) with a browser. Mobile apps are supported by most devices.
Why am I asked to log in on some occasions and not others?
This may be because your browser may clear its web cache/history if it is set to do so. In such cases you will need to log back into NYTimes.com, but you can still use your NYTimes.com Pass.
Access is also provided to New York Times in Education, which provides resources designed for Educators, such as:
• Email newsletters, including California Today and The Edit (a newsletter designed for college students).
• Customized Alerts: Sign up for a notification when an article is published about a topic you're interested in, or get a weekly digest of those articles. This is a particularly useful feature for professors, as they can require students to set a specific alert based on current course topics.
• Cross-Platform Save; any article you save on NYTimes.com is easily accessible from any device.
• Article recommendations based on topics you most commonly read about.
