Central Student Government is pleased to offer subscriptions to both The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times (including the Cooking add-on, new in October!) to all students. Unlike other methods of access, with your individual account, you can access wsj.com or nytimes.com and the mobile apps, after only needing to verify your student status once, and you don’t need to be on campus or on the VPN to read the news. Here’s how to sign up!
The Wall Street Journal instructions
Faculty and staff may also take advantage of this subscription.
You can activate your subscription by visiting http://wsj.com/UMAnnArbor. You’ll then login with U-M Weblogin, and follow the instructions to create your account or sign in to an existing account.
Once you set up your account, you’ll have access to The Wall Street Journal through this account until you graduate.
If you already have an account, you’ll need to cancel any active subscriptions before you can activate your school-sponsored subscription. Just call 1-800-JOURNAL to cancel, and then come back and sign up using the link above.
Questions? For technical support, assistance with your subscription, or anything else related to the subscription, call 1-800-JOURNAL or email email@example.com. If you have any questions you feel cannot be answered by WSJ’s support, or if you run into any problems that aren’t being resolved, please contact Hayden Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The New York Times instructions
This is for students only.
You can activate your subscription by visiting accessnyt.com. Search for and select University of Michigan Ann Arbor, and you will be directed to the registration page. Click "Create Account" and complete fields; you must use your @umich.edu email (Michigan Medicine individuals: your @med.umich.edu email will not work; simply remove the “med.” from your email and it will make it to your inbox). You may also sign in to an existing account, but only if it is your @umich.edu email.
You must then verify your email address by clicking the link in an email you will receive. If you do not receive an email after some time, check your spam folder.
If you already have an @umich.edu account with a paid subscription, you’ll need to cancel any active subscriptions before you can activate your school-sponsored subscription. Just follow the directions here to cancel your subscription, and then come back and sign up using the link above.
Once you set up your account, you’ll have access to The New York Times through this account until you graduate.
Questions? For technical support, assistance with your subscription, or anything else related to the subscription, contact The New York Times’ support at email@example.com. If you have any questions you feel cannot be answered by the NYT's support, or if you run into any problems that aren’t being resolved, please contact Hayden Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The New York Times Cooking instructions
We also have a new feature as part of our Times subscription—the Cooking add-on! This is also for students only.
New York Times Cooking is an inspiring cooking guide, innovative and interactive kitchen tool, and diverse recipe collection that helps home cooks of every level discover, save and organize the world’s best recipes, while also helping them become better, more competent cooks.
To sign up, go to the survey here, which will include a few short questions to assess our subscriptions program, and then you will be taken to the link at the end with instructions on how to apply this to your account. Please note that while you do not have to add this to your CSG Times subscription, we highly recommend it.
If you have any issues, use the same contact information listed above for the Times news subscription.
