News: Wall Street Journal account

Wall Street Journal Access

Why create a UW WSJ account?

Newspaper websites like the Wall Street Journal use a paywall to restrict articles to paid subscribers. By creating a UW WSJ account, you can access WSJ articles online as soon as they are published, including accompanying images and videos (which are not included in library news databases). Your account will also allow you to access to the Wall Street Journal website, mobile apps and podcasts.

  • Current UW and Cascadia students, faculty, and staff may create an account to access the Wall Street Journal on
  • You must use your UW email address to create a WSJ account.
    • Information on UW NetIDs for Cascadia students, staff and faculty is found here. If you are a CC student, staff, or faculty who is experiencing trouble with their UW NetID, contact the Cascadia Helpdesk.
  • WSJ news articles are also available without registration through article databases. See details below.
