Welcome to Islington U3A. We are a part of the
world-wide University of the Third Age (U3A), open to all
who are retired or semi-retired.
Membership of iU3A is open to people living in or around Islington who want to keep their minds sharp, get out and about and learn new things, sparking new interests and meeting new people. Getting involved in iU3A enables us to expand our horizons, share skills and knowledge and help others to learn.
iU3a is part of our local community and we aim to contribute to it in all kinds of ways. That includes supporting worthwhile local charities and Islington Giving Week, our main fundraising event of the year, is coming up soon. All proceeds (no deductions for admin) go to support organisations and projects that reduce poverty and isolation in the borough. We hope all iU3A members will participate in or support this in some way. See the side panel for more detail or go straight to a special page here

Study and discussion groups are the core of iU3A. There are 40 groups to join (with more on the way), from Architecture, Art, Books and Crafts to Scrabble, Theatre and Walks; click here to see
We also have a monthly members' meeting,
always with a high profile, interesting and entertaining
speaker, and always with plenty of time to meet and chat to
other iU3A members.
Above all, iU3A is a members' organization. We are as strong and diverse as our members and their ideas, energies and activities. There are so many ways to participate. Come to our monthly meetings and get involved in the question and answer sessions. Join a new group or try a local walk or outing to learn more about our part of London. Become a group co-ordinator - you don't have to be an expert, just someone who enjoys the topic and helping the group organize itself. Do you have skills to help iU3A move forward by joining the Steering Committee? If you would like to chat about any of these possibilities, please go to the Contacts page where you can get in touch with the best person to help.
Islington U3A now has over 350 members, with the number
still rising. To join in, please click here: Join Us
