How to log in and access

The Rains Library provides complimentary digital subscription to the New York Times Games. This includes access to the complete collection of New York Times Games, including The Crossword. Accessing the games requires logging in with a member ID.

  • All current law students have been entered into the system with their full LLS email address as their Member ID.
  • A welcome email is sent directly from NYT Group Subscriptions. Please follow the instructions in the email and log in with the full LLS email address listed; example:
    • If you’ve already signed up for for access to the news provided by the library, you are still able to use the same LLS email address for the Games account, however, at the moment, there is no way to link the accounts. On the other hand, if you have an existing Games subscription that you signed up with your LLS email account, you cannot claim a Games pass with the same email. A single email address cannot be dual entitled to the same subscription and would require you to use a different email.

If you didn't receive a welcome email, or are an LLS Faculty or Staff member wanting to get access, please fill out this Request Access to NYTimes Games form.
