FAQs

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, and to the NYT mobile apps at NYTimes.com/mobile. Current registered visitors not connected to a pass may only read up to 10 free articles per month. The NYTimes.com Pass gives 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 paid ​Times digital or print subscription that gives me unlimited access to NYTimes.com. What should I do?

If you have an existing paid digital subscription, you are not eligible to activate a NYTimes.com Pass. Please contact customercare@nytimes.com to discuss your options. You may wish to cancel your current digital subscription in order to activate a NYTimes.com Pass.


What are the restrictions?

NYTimes.com Passes do not include e-reader editions or digital versions of The New York Times Crossword. NYT mobile apps are not supported on all devices. Access to archived articles from 1923 to 1980 is limited to five articles per 24 hour period. Other restrictions may apply.​


Can I access The Times from off-campus?

Yes, as long as you have previously activated your NYTimes.com Pass using the links in the "Creating Your NYTtimes.com Account" box to the left. 


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.
