Questions? See FAQs below or use the "Email Me" button in the box to the right. 



1. What if I already have a personal account from a personal subscription?

  • The NYT only allows for one account per user; so, if you already have an account because of a personal subscription, you will need to log in with that account, or cancel the subscription to take advantage of the Emory access.

2. What if I have an existing personal subscription tied to my Emory email that I want to cancel in order to take advantage of Emory's free access?

  • Call NYTimes Customer Care at 800-591-9233.

3. Once I graduate, when will my account be turned off?

  • Sept. 30 of your graduation year

4. If I’m a faculty or staff member, when will my registration expire? 

  • Every 52 weeks after your initial registration, you will need to reauthenticate. When you experience hitting the paywall (e.g. articles are “locked”), you will need to make sure you are connected to the Emory network (either by logging in from on campus or by using the VPN from off-site) and going to this webpage to renew: Make sure you are logged in to the NYTimes website with your email and your existing NYTimes password. Your access will resume uninterrupted for another 52 weeks.
  • Note: You may get a notification that you still need to connect to your home institution's network from the grouppass webpage, but try clicking on the "Go to" link first. If your account now shows you as a "Digital Subscriber," then you have successfully renewed. If you are an Emory Law faculty member, staff person, or student, please email for additional assistance.
