New York Times Online Access

Thanks to the CUNY Council of Chief Librarians, anyone with a valid CUNY email address can receive unlimited access to the New York Times in digital and mobile formats.

Here are the steps to follow to sign up for access:

  1. Go to nytimes.com/passes.
  2. Click on "Register" to create a NYTimes.com account using your Hunter email address.
  3. At the bottom of the Welcome page, click "Continue."
  4. You will then see a "Check Your Email" message. Look for a "Confirm Your Email Address" message, which should arrive to your Hunter email within 15 minutes.
  5. Click on the link in the confirmation email. This will simultaneously verify your eligibility and grant your Academic Pass, which will provide access to NYTimes.com for your campus's designated period.
  6. If you don't get a confirmation email, check your spam filter. If you still do not receive it, send an email from your Hunter email account to edu@nytimes.com.

Once you've created an account, access will simply require your Hunter New York Times login--you will not have to authenticate it through the library's website. You will see your subscription as being for "one year," although it will be renewed as the subscription continues.

If you already have an annual subscription to the New York Times with your Hunter email address, you can cancel it and receive a refund. If you wish to continue your own access (for example, If you get the print edition with online access), but also want to use the Hunter version, we suggest you move your original subscription to a personal email address.

The only limit to material is for articles published before 1980. However, Hunter College Libraries has full access to New York Times - Historical, with digitally reproduced pages from every issue starting in 1851.
