New York Times: New York Times Site License

This guide will explain how to create an account and access the New York Times using your Franklin Pierce University email address.

Accessing the New York Times

The DiPietro Library offers three different ways to access the New York Times.  

  • We have a site license which allows users with a FPU email account to access it directly from their computers or mobile devices.
  • We offer NYT in Education, which is a platform geared specifically for educators.
  • The New York Times is still available via the ProQuest database.

Getting Started using the Site License

The New York Times site license allows FPU students, faculty, and staff to access the NY Times directly after creating an account.  

  1. Click on the NYTimes.com Pass link.
  2. Create an account using your FPU email address.  DO NOT use your FPU password.
  3. When you see the 'Start Your Access' screen, you have successfully registered.

Returning Users

Once you have activated your account, you can log into your account at NYTimes.com.


Mobile Apps

To download your free NYTimes smartphone or iPad apps, go to the NYTimes mobile site.

How long does the pass last?

  • The pass is good for one year or longer, and can be renewed upon reaching expiration.

How do you renew the pass after reaching expiration?

  • Simply go to AccessNYT.com and search for Franklin Pierce University.  Please use the same username and password from NYTimes.com. If password is not known, go to NYTimes.com/forgot to have it reset to your email address used as the NYTimes.com username.
