New York Times Campus Subscription: 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.

Why can’t I log in?

You must activate your account from Franklin Pierce University’s network, or by logging in to FPU from off-campus by using the Pass link to create an account.

Does the Site License have any restrictions?
