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 visitors and registered 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. 

Visitors to the Library will need to arrive during staffed hours. Registered external borrowers will need to arrive during the hours shown in the ‘External borrower access’ column below, before the swipe access on campus is activated, but will still be able to leave after this time.

Out of staffed hours you must have your UWE Bristol ID card with you. Entry to the library will be refused without it.
