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 for the entire duration of your Pass.
Can I access The Times from off-campus?
Yes, as long as you have previously activated your NYTimes.com Pass from within your institution’s network.
Can I access The Times from my mobile device?
