Unlimited Access to The New York Times

The New York Times logo

Go to http://accessnyt.com/.

  1. Search for "Rice University"
  2. If you are setting up an account for the first time, you must use your Rice email for setup. For best practice choose a unique and secure password.
    • If you are renewing your digital subscription, be sure to use your same account by clicking on "Already have an account? Log on here >>" and sign in with your existing username/password.
  3. Check your email for a confirmation from NY Times and click on the link in the email. If you don't see the email, check your spam filter (i.e. Proofpoint). For help with this step go to https://libanswers.rice.edu/faq/272916.
  4. Confirm your account is working by going to NYT.com and clicking on 'Account'. You should see 'Digital Subscriber' listed under your username.
  5. If you use the NY Times mobile app, log out and back in.
