"If you have time, we have time for you"

Welcome
Islington U3A is part of the world-wide University of the Third Age (u3a), open to all who are not in full-time employment.

Membership of iU3A is open to people who want to keep their minds sharp, get out and about and learn new things, sparking new interests, meeting new people and keeping physically active. Age is no barrier to learning or to helping others to learn.

There are no entry qualifications, no exams and no prizes; just the satisfaction of keeping mind and body active, and connecting with local people who want to do the same. At heart Islington U3A is voluntary, self-help and enjoyable.

Islington U3A now has over 670 members with the number still rising. Come and Join Us

Coronavirus
We are now coming out of the Government restrictions and therefore more of our activities, particularly the outdoor Groups, are re-starting. We may have some hybrid (joint online and in person) meetings for a time yet but at least we have the growing opportunity to get together again. There is more information on our current activities on our What's On webpage. All our Interest Groups are functioning.

What We Do
Our main core activities are:

  • Monthly Meetings — these generally include a high-profile, interesting and entertaining speaker (the Monthly Talk) and always with plenty of time to meet and chat to other iU3A members. See the list of our next speakers here.
  • Interest Groups — there are over 50 groups to join, some small, some large, and covering a range of interests. Click on the the link here for more information Groups List
  • Special Events — these include one-off events, coffee mornings and pub lunches. See the What's On page for further information.
  • Outings — these will be visits to places, often outside London, and open to all the iU3A membership. See the What's On page for further information.

See our News page for things we've been getting up to recently and have a look at our What's On page for what's coming up in the short term. We also let members know what's happening on a regular basis with our regular communications — our fortnightly Bulletins and seasonal Newsletters.

Members of iU3A can also attend events organised by U3A Nationally (see their website here) and by London Region (see their website here). Or get involved in Shared Learning or Research projects — see the Other Opportunities page for further information.
