Why use the Pass to read The New York Times online?

The New York Times requires a paid subscription for full access to its website; unsubscribed visitors may only read up to 10 free articles per month. The 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 What should I do?

If you have an existing digital subscription, you are not eligible to activate an Pass. Please contact to discuss your options.

What are the restrictions?

You need to be connected to the your institution’s network to activate the Pass. At this time, access to articles from 1923 to 1980 is limited to five articles for the entire duration of your Pass.

 Can I access The Times from off-campus?

Yes, as long as you have previously activated your Pass from within your institution’s network.

Can I access The Times from my mobile device?

All Passes provide full access to NYT apps; visit to download. Pass holders can also access and 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, but you can still use your Pass.

I still need help!
