Current UAlbany students, faculty, and staff at the University at Albany can activate their complimentary memberships by visiting Access NYT

  1. Where it says "Find Your School," enter SUNY Albany and use your UAlbany credentials to activate your pass. 
  2. Create a account using your UAlbany credentials – or use your pre-existing profile if you have one.



Can't create your account? Issues may include having a paid subscription associated with your university email, already having connected a NYT academic pass, or browser/cookie settings.

 What's included? 

Your pass includes unlimited online access to The New York Times and mobile applications, including international, Chinese, and Spanish editions, plus archives from 1851 and the NYTimes in Education site. Times Premier content or New York Times Games, New York Times Cooking or The Athletic, and e-reader editions (e.g., Kindle Fire, Nook, etc.) are not included. However, you can add a subscription to Cooking or Games to your free institutional account.
