New York Times access



The New York Times just launched Academic passes, which provide full access for 24 hours to the digital newspaper. You must have a Stanford email address to participate and there is a limit of 500 simultaneous users. The 24 hours begin at the time of claiming the pass and also allow access on most devices** to the NYTimes apps.

See the New York Times Help page for more information.

** Mobile apps are not supported on all devices. Does not include e-reader editions, Premium Crosswords or The New York Times Crosswords apps.

Please also see How do I find The New York Times online? for other means of access.

This doesn't appear to be working, ever since the beginning of the summer quarter. Can you confirm if NYTimes academic passes are still available? Thanks.
Sorry, but there are no academic passes for the summer.

Do you guys carry a print version every day, including the weekend?
Hi Nick.
We sure do. The Information Center has the daily edition every day, but Saturday and Sunday are not shelved until Monday. The SSRC reading room also has the NYT, and it's in other libraries on campus as well. Thanks for reading!

What is the login/password for the academic passes?

I usually find print copies of the NYT at the Gates Building but have not seen any this summer. Are they available somewhere else on campus where I can grab my own copy? Thanks! -Danielle
Hi Danielle,

I'm afraid it's not the Stanford University Libraries who provide those print copies of the New York Times on campus -- it's a student group called the Stanford News Readership Program, which does not seem to have made the print copies (or the 24-hour online passes) available this summer.
