Accessing the New York Times

Did you know that UNR students, staff, and faculty have access to the New York Times online? Access includes The New York Times online, The New York Times Book Review, and The New York Times Magazine (we do not have access to the New York Times Crossword). Here are a few steps to get you started with your free access.

Step 1: 

  • From off-campus, go to our proxied NY Times Access Page and follow steps 1-3 below to create your account.
  • From on-campus, go to accessnyt.com and select the University of Nevada, Reno from the dropdown menu:

Step 3:

Please note that your access will work for one calendar year; you will need to log in from an on-campus computer or use the proxied link from off-campus to re-establish your access one year from the date you sign up. You can set a calendar reminder by following the link provided:
