Frenchay Library summer refurbishments
We've listened to your feedback, and are pleased to announce a range of improvements to Frenchay Library.
Access to study spaces and IT facilities during the refurbishments
The refurbishments are almost complete. We are just finishing off some new signage, and adding security gates. There will be some noise when these are being worked on. We will post advance notice about these occasions on our Twitter account.
Access Frenchay Library from our main entrance by One Zone, or from our new entrance in the Glendinning lecture theatre (2D67) foyer near the Octagon. For an accessible route, please use the lift on Level 2 of the Library.
- Printers are available on Levels 2, 3 and 4.
- Book returns: please use the book-return machines in the wall on Level 2.
Access to physical collections
All of the stock is now back on the shelves. Thank you for your patience during the refurbishments.

Provision for disabled students
UWE Bristol Library is committed to providing inclusive and accessible study spaces and resources. As part of our redevelopment work last year and this summer, we are ensuring that all areas have accessible desks installed and access to specialist software on the UWE Bristol IT network. By creating two new entrances to the Library, we are increasing the access to accessible toilets.
As part of the planning process, we consulted widely with all students, including disabled students, to understand requirements for specialist study areas. During our consultation, disabled students told us that they sometimes find it easier to work in a smaller, quiet room with less people around them. Here are some alternative spaces within the Library that can meet this need.
|3D31||Assistive Technology room - bookable via myPC|
|Group study rooms||Level 4 has 8 bookable group study rooms suitable for a range of group sizes.|
|5D7||This is a small room accessed via the main study floor with 12 study spaces with PCs. This is suitable for silent study only.|
|5D19||This is a silent study room for bringing your own laptop or borrowing a library laptop.|
