The DiMenna-Nyselius Library is pleased to provide the Fairfield University community online access to The New York Times through the New York Times Group Pass. The Group Pass gives each Fairfield University student, faculty and staff an online subscription to the New York Times which provides them access to NYTimes.com, NYTimes mobile apps, NYT inEducation, as well as their international editions.
In addition, users can discover and share content on social networks, save articles, subscribe to email newsletters of areas of interest and receive news alerts, either on predefined topics or through a keyword search the user designates.
Please note this subscription does not include e-reader editions, Premium Crosswords or The New York Times Crosswords apps.
To activate your Group Pass to the New York Times, follow these steps:
If you have trouble grabbing a pass, it could be because you have an existing NY Times account. Please see box below for assistance.

Group Pass accounts expire 364 days after being activated. However, that does not mean you've lost access. Here's how to renew your account:
1. The Group Pass gives you unlimited access to all content* on the NYTimes.com, including archived articles since 1851. You may read online as many articles per day as you wish but downloading articles from 1923 to 1980 is limited to five articles per day. If you need articles from the archive, you can also visit New York Times - Historical database for unlimited access to articles from 1851-2016.
2. Ongoing Use: Once you have activated your Academic Pass, students will have full access until you graduate. Faculty/Staff will have full access for 52 weeks (364 days). If you see a message that you are reaching the limit of free articles on the site, you’re probably not logged in. Simply log back in.
3. Mobile app access for smartphones and iPads is also provided with the Library subscription. Simply download the app on your device and log-in using your fairfield.edu email log-in.
4. This subscription does not include e-reader editions, Premium Crosswords or The New York Times Crosswords apps.
