Academic Pass Setup

  • Create a NYT Academic Pass account by visiting accessnyt.com. Select Georgetown University - Washington D.C. Follow the instructions to create your account.
  • Use your Georgetown email to create a new account or use an existing nytimes.com account. Your Times password should NOT be your NetID password -- your NYT account is separate from other GU accounts. In creating a New York Times account, you are subject to the terms and condititions set by the New York Times.
  • Set your graduation year, if you are a student. If you are faculty or staff, indicate Faculty/Staff in the account setup process.
  • See "You've claimed your NYTimes Pass"? Your pass is active! Go to nytimes.com and enjoy the newspaper.

Academic Pass Details

  • Direct access to nytimes.com for four years - can be renewed until graduation (students) or duration of employment (faculty/staff).
  • App access to the New York Times News App for iOS and Android devices when signed in to your New York Times account.
  • NYT Archive access (1851-1980). Read 5 articles per day from the archives. For more access, see NYT for Research (below).
  • Crossword, Cooking, and The Athletic not included. Sorry, puzzlers and chefs - you'll need a separate personal subscription for these features.

Renewing your NYT Subscription

  • Student Academic Pass Accounts are valid until graduation. As part of the claiming process, you'll be asked for your graduation date.
  • Faculty/Staff Academic Pass Accounts are valid for four years. To renew your Academic Pass:
    • Go to nytimes.com/pass.
    • Make sure you are not already logged into the NYTimes.com account with which you activated your last Pass, and that your username is still a @georgetown.edu email address.
    • If you still have a valid NetID (and we still subscribe to the Academic Pass program!) you will be granted a new Pass and see the Start Your Access screen.
    • You can now continue enjoying full access to NYTimes.com and the NYT app.
