The New York Times Digital is now available to all CUNY students, faculty and staff! The CUNY account now entitles all people with
cuny.tv email domains to acquire a subscription to the digital NYTimes. Once an account is created, access is available from anywhere with a NYTimes login.
Anyone who initiates an account will have an active subscription for one year from the date he/she creates the account. If a patron already has an annual subscription to the NYTimes, he/she can cancel it and will receive a refund. However, if the patron only has a monthly subscription, the New York Times will not issue a refund for that month.
The academic digital subscription works as a regular digital NYTimes subscription with two exceptions:
The Office of Library Services has negotiated with Dow Jones to allow all members of the CUNY community to access the Wall Street Journal! Everybody with a
cuny.tv email domain should now be able to activate a digital subscription.
Go to https://partner.wsj.com/enter-redemption-code/CUNYnd5wtb6z to activate your "membership" and then go to "the Journal" at www.wsj.com.
Current subscribers can call 1-800-JOURNAL (1-800-568-7625) to switch from their paid subscription to the membership through their campus and they will be refunded the remaining balance of their subscription.
In addition to your subscription, a membership includes:
All faculty & staff retain WSJ membership for one year after activating. After that, they will have to re-activate their membership.
When a student activates their membership, they are required to input their graduation date & year. This is their membership expiration date. If they graduate later than expected and lose access, they can re-activate their membership.
