Welcome to our U3A websiteVisitors
Southampton U3A encourages lifelong learning in an informal way. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds and life experiences. We share our skills and expertise to help each other to learn.
We have around 500 members and about 60 groups, covering a wide range of subjects and interests. Groups meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Most activities take place in members' homes. We have a Social Group which organises for example theatre visits, trips and short holiday breaks. We also welcome visiting speakers on specialist subjects to our monthly meetings.
U3A membership is open to all who are in their ‘third age’ and no longer in full time employment.
You do not need any qualifications to join our U3A and nor do we give any. Our focus is on enthusiasm and involvement and our group leaders and their helpers are all volunteers.
In addition to offering new interests and learning opportunities, the U3A approach can provide mutual support, companionship, and a widening of human relationships which many members value greatly.
We hope that you will discover our approach to life in the ‘third age’ interesting and exciting and that you will want to join us.
