New York Times Academic Site License: Home

This guide provides information about DePauw University's access to NYTimes.com, how to setup your account and what content is available to students, staff and faculty at DePauw.

Welcome to the New York Times online

DePauw University Libraries are pleased to announce access to the New York Times daily newspaper on your computer, smartphone or tablet. (Note: this will not work on Kindle readers, only Kindle Fire.)  Get the news each day along with other digital-only content via the web or the NYT app.  All you need is your @depauw.edu email address to register.

Using The New York Times Academic Site License

 

Step 1: Navigate to www.accessnyt.com

 

Step 2: Search for and select DePauw University.

 

You will be redirected to the NYT registration page.

 

Step 3: Click "Create Account" and complete fields. You must use your @depauw.edu email address. (See below if you have an existing NYT account.)

 

Step 4: Verify your account (you will receive a confirmation email).*

 

* The confirmation email may be routed to your spam folder. You must click the link in this email to complete the registration.

 

Existing New York Times Account

 

If you have previously registered your @depauw.edu email address on The New York Times site, you will click "Log in here" below the Create Account button link for Step 3.

 

Current Paid Subscription

 

Anyone with a paid account using their depauw.edu address who wants to switch over, must first deactivate their subscription.  That will "free up" the email address.

 

To cancel an existing PAID subscription, contact New York Times Customer Care at: customercare@nytimes.com or 800-591-9233

 

Once your email address is available, you may follow the steps above, but instead of clicking "Create Account" click the link below ("Already have an account?  Log in here") and login with your depauw.edu email address.
