Institutional Subscriptions at the University of Tulsa: New York Times

A guide to University-wide subscriptions offered by the University of Tulsa Libraries.

Institutional Access to the New York Times

The New York Times logo.

The University of Tulsa's New York Times subscription allows users to create a personal account to view all current news and media content created by the New York Times, as well as all historical content dating back to Issue 1 in 1851. This personal account is tied to your TU email address but does not use TU's single sign-on, meaning that you will need to create a password to use to login to this account. Your New York Times subscription can be accessed at any time on or off of campus. Your institutional subscription will also work on the New York Times app and to sign up for New York Times newsletters. 

Please note that this subscriptions is specifically available for currently-enrolled University of Tulsa students, as well as current staff and faculty. Licenses for these subscriptions do not include access for former students, retirees, or alumni. After setting up a subscription to each site, you will be asked to confirm your University of Tulsa current affiliation via email confirmation and these sites will confirm your current University affiliation on an annual basis. 

Already have a personal New York Times subscription?

If you already had a personal New York Times subscription affiliated with your TU email address, the New York Times attempted to reach out to migrate your personal subscription to our institutional license. If you did not hear from the New York Times, you are still eligible to migrate your personal subscription to our institutional group subscription. You can talk to a chat agent or call 800-698-4637 to cancel your paid subscription before migrating to our institutional license.
