New York Times Online: Get Started

The New York Times is available free for CSUSB students and employees. Find out how to get access!

There's an app for that

The NY Times has apps for Android and Mac. Get help with apps here.

Create your CSUSB access account on the web first; then use your account to login to the app.

Sorry, access to the premium apps for the NYT Games and NYT Cooking is not part of the CSUSB subscription.


Q. What's included in the CSUSB subscription?

A. Access to New York Times articles, interactive graphics, videos, and podcasts, plus digitized images of the paper from 1851-2002. The NYTimes in Education site is included but requires a separate account. Content from NYT Cooking and NYT Crosswords is not included, nor are their apps. 

Q. What if I already have a personal NY Times subscription?

A. You will first need to cancel your paid subscription by contacting NYT Customer Care. After you have cancelled the subscription, register for CSUSB digital access by going to Access-NYT for CSUSB. Instead of creating a new account, click on "Already have an account? Log in here." Then enter your existing personal username & password. Your existing account will be automatically associated with the CSUSB subscription.

If you wish to keep your existing personal account (and just cancel the paid subscription), we suggest changing the email address on your current account to something other than your CSUSB email address before canceling. That will allow you to activate your CSUSB account 24 hours afterward. The NYTimes system recognizes only one unique email address per active account. 

Q. Can I download PDFs of the digitized historical NY Times?

A. Yes, digital images of the NY Times from 1851-2002 are available in the Times Machine. However, PDF downloads are limited to 5 per user, per day (so choose wisely). 

Q. How do I reactivate my account if it has expired?

A. Go through the CSUSB Access NYT link again, or visit and search for California State University - San Bernardino. On the registration page, click the "Already have an account? Log in here" link. You will see an on-screen confirmation that your access has been reactivated with a new expiration date.


Get Access

Step 1: Go to the AccessNYT web site

After you click the "Go" button, you'll be asked to login to MyCoyote, if you haven't already.

Step 2: Create Your Account

Use your CSUSB-issued email address to create your account. (Ending in for students, or for employees)

Ignore the options to login with Google, Facebook, or Apple. Just put your CSUSB email address in the box.

For security, we recommend that you pick a password other than your CSUSB email password.

Step 3: Confirm Your New Account

The first time you login, you'll be asked for a few details:

Are you a student or faculty/staff? If you're a student, choose your expected graduation year.

When you've completed the setup, you'll get a confirmation with your account expiration date:

The "Start Your Access" message shows your access expiration date.

Now you can use your account to login to the NY Times web site from anywhere!
