Already have a personal (paid) account with your email?

An email address may only be associated with one (paid) subscription at a time. As such, if a patron has an existing NYT (paid) account with a email, they will need to cancel it first, before it can be associated with the Pratt Institute Libraries Site License. To cancel your subscription please contact NYT customer care:

Please note that canceling your account may result in the loss of saved articles, newsletters, or personalized account settings.

Once canceled, that will "free up" the email and you can proceed with creating a new account at this page: Create an NYTimes Account.

*Please be advised that canceling a subscription only becomes effective at the end of your billing cycle.  For more information about this policy please visit the NYT terms of sale for digital products.

You can re-activate your account here. To re-activate, follow the "already have an account prompt."
