Digital New York Times

The Office of the Provost and the Baylor Libraries are pleased to announce a new digital subscription that makes The New York Times available to all students, faculty, and staff, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

The advantages of Baylor's new subscription include:

  • Unrestricted access for all students, faculty, and staff.
  • Available 365 days per year.
  • Keyword search across the entire New York Times corpus.
  • Access to New York Times content from 1851 to present, except for limited access (5 article downloads daily) to content between 1923 through 1980.
  • PDFs of each print edition available for viewing.
  • Personalization options by using your Baylor e-mail address to set up a New York Times account, including the option to save articles.
  • Access to NYT Newsletters, NYT Podcasts such as the Daily, NYT Video content, the New York Times in Education website and augmented and virtual reality content
  • Access to eligible mobile applications.

To activate access to The New York Times, current Baylor students, faculty, and staff should make sure they are connected to the AirBear wireless network or the campus wired network and then follow these steps:

  1. Visit
  2. Follow the simple instructions to activate your personal academic pass.
  3. Download the free NYT apps at

Once activated, the campus community will be able to access The New York Times via or the NYT apps from any location. Faculty and staff will need to renew the pass annually, and student access will expire with the provided graduation date.

The NYT mobile apps are not supported on all devices, and Baylor's subscription does not include e-reader editions, Times Insider content or digital versions of The New York Times Crossword. In addition, our subscription provides only select access to The New York Times Archive and does not replace database services available through the Baylor Libraries at

The year-round digital access to The New York Times replaces the 350 print copies that were delivered to campus weekdays only during the fall and spring semesters. Because of a recent delivery interruption, the Office of the Provost in collaboration with the Baylor Libraries arranged for a digital subscription that would provide all students, faculty and staff year-round access to The New York Times at a substantial cost savings.

We hope that everyone will appreciate having more robust access to The New York Times, but if you have questions, send a message to
