New York Times Now Available Online for Students

By Thomas Mattes

The Business and Finance Committee (BFC) has made it easier for Kenyon students to access to all the news thats fit to print.

In conjunction with its paper subscription to the New York Times, which currently delivers 200 copies to Peirce Hall every morning, the BFC has made the Times online content, which sits behind a paywall, available to students free of charge for 200 students each day.

To use the service, students need to register their Kenyon email address and create an account on After creating an account, they can access the paper on their computer or through a smartphone application.

Only 200 spots will be available for students each day. Once a student logs into their account, they have the seat for 24 hours.

This year the Times has added a new feature for College subscribers where you can get online access, said BFC Co-Chair Andie Asimes 13. There is no difference in price between this years combined online and paper subscription and last years paper-only subscription, according to Asimes.

We hope that people use it, Asimes said, adding that she does not expect the 200 available subscriptions to fill up every day. A lot of the time people are good about taking a paper [we hope] that people use [the online subscription] especially since its so easy.
