About Southampton U3A
2017 was the 25th anniversary year of Southampton U3A, which first met in the autumn of 1992. 35 people attended the first meeting. There are now around 500 members, around 60 groups and a wide range of interests.
Groups are the main activity of a U3A. Groups are run by members for members. If you find the groups you want to join are full, our Groups Co-ordinators can help you start a new one. You can find out more about our groups here.
Our monthly general meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month at St James Methodist Church Hall, Shirley. We have a varied programme, with speakers on a wide range of subjects (details here)
The Social Committee arranges a varied programme of activities throughout the year (see newsletter for details) which offer opportunities to get to know other members.
We publish our bi-monthly newsletter at the beginning of January, March, May, July, September and November. The newsletter includes full details of local and national events, including signing–up information. The current newsletter is available here
