Bryn Mawr is an intermediate stop on the North Side Embankment with a single narrow island platform that serves the middle local tracks of the four track lines. The platform has a canopy except over the northern two cars, which just have modern square lampposts, and a tiny portion of the southern end. The main exit is in the middle of the station and a staircase and up escalator leads down to the fare control area that was modernized in 1974 with a modern cashers booth and turnstiles. Between the turnstiles and station exit is a newsstand that lead out to the southside of Bryn Mawr Avenue beneath the concrete overpass of this street. Outside the brick entrance between storefronts are decorative moldings from the station that opened in the 1920s but otherwise is simple brick. There is a secondary exit from the platform towards its northern end with a single staircase that splits into two just before two high exit turnstiles out to the northside of Bryn Mawr Avenue slightly set back between storefronts from the street.
