Andromeda V is a dwarf spheroidal galaxy about 2.52 Mly away in the constellation Andromeda.

Andromeda V was discovered by Armandroff et al. and published in 1998 after their analysis of the digitized version of the second Palomar Sky Survey.[2]

The metallicity of Andromeda V is above the average metallicity to luminosity ratio of the Local Group's dwarf galaxies.[4]
