Access The New York Times through Columbia University Libraries


Columbia University faculty, staff, and students now have full access to content from The New York Times through the Libraries. The Libraries’ campus-wide site license enables current Columbia faculty, staff, and students to activate an Pass, which provides access to content on the Times’ website on desktop, laptop, and mobile devices. Access is limited to email addresses only. To sign up for an account, complete the Pass redemption form with your Columbia email address and a password of your choosing. 

Please note that if you have an existing, paid subscription to the Times, you must cancel it before you activate your pass with the Libraries’ site license. Instructions to cancel your paid subscription, along with other policies regarding access, linking to and reproducing content, FAQs, and terms of services are detailed in a guide from Libraries’ staff.
