What is U3A?
The U3A (University of the Third Age) is an international self-help movement, run by and for retirees. It aims to create welcoming communities where over 50’s can connect with each other, find stimulating retirement activities, learn new hobbies or develop old ones, make new friends and most importantly, enjoy life to the full.
U3A Melbourne City welcomes members from all over Melbourne City and suburbs to a host of classes and activities, held in convenient locations around the CBD. We offer a wide variety of courses, from crosswords to creative writing, philosophy to films, mah jong to mindfulness and more. If you want to keep your body active, join our walking, cycling, dance and yoga classes. Those who love the arts will enjoy our gallery and exhibition visits, drawing and painting classes, and art appreciation courses.
As a member of U3A, you need never worry about feeling bored in retirement. Come and join our vibrant community, where you’ll find plenty of day-time activities to keep you busy. For a comprehensive list of what’s on offer have a look at our Courses here, browse our Diary of Events, or click here to view our past newsletters. There is something for everyone.
