Frenchay opening times

Frenchay library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

You can still borrow books using the self-service machines when library staff are unavailable. The library Help Desk may close 10 minutes before staff finish for the day.

Due to recent security changes to external doors on campus, our access times for external borrowers have changed. You will need a green staff card, or turquoise student card, to enter the swipe-access doors outside of core hours. External borrowers will need to arrive before the swipe access is activated each day. We've added these times to the dates below.
