New York Times Group Pass

Arizona State University Library provides access to nytimes.com for all current students, staff, and faculty members through a Group Pass. ASU users must initially register for an Academic Group Pass account or renew an existing Group Pass account by following these steps:  

  1. Click on this link https://libguides.asu.edu/nytimesagrppass
  2. Choose if you are ON campus or OFF campus.
    1. If you are ON campus, click the hyperlink “here”.
    2. If you are OFF campus, click on the big blue “Go” button.
  3. You will be taken to a new page where you can create an account. Use the “Create Account” button whether you are CREATING or RENEWING an account.

  4. Use the "Continue with Google" button, making sure to use your ASURite@asu.edu email, NOT your firstname.lastname@asu.edu email.
  5. You will be taken to a myASU login page. Please sign in as if you were signing in to myASU.
  6. When you see START YOUR ACCESS, *students* registering for their passes will be asked to provide an anticipated graduation date, and their passes will remain valid until December of their graduation year. *New Faculty/Staff* academic passes are now valid for 1456 days. *Existing Faculty/Staff* will get the new validation from 364 days to 1456 days upon renewing their expired passes.
  7. Once your account is renewed you won’t need to use the link in this guide until you need to renew; instead, use the normal link nytimes.com from any location and sign in on their website.

Also, included in the pass is access to the NYTimes smartphone apps (iPhone, Android, Windows). To Download free mobile apps, visit nytimes.com/mobile . Unfortunately, the tablet apps are not included in this access. Tablet users may instead access the nytimes.com website using a browser.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
