Our Charity Month
See what we are planning this year here.

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 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.

What We Do
Our main core activities are:
  • Interest Groups — there are over 50 groups to join. Some small, some large. Covering a range of interests. Click on the the link here for more information Groups List
  • Monthly Members' Meetings — we have a high profile, interesting and entertaining speaker, and always with plenty of time to meet and chat to other iU3A members. See link in the box top right for further information.
  • Special Events — these include one off events, coffeee mornings and pub lunches. See the What's On page for further information.

We let our members know what's happening on a regular basis with regular communications. Look at our News page for more information and links to our fortnightly Bulletins and seasonal Newsletters.

As a member of iU3A we support Other Opportunities. You can attend events organised by U3A nationally and by London Region U3A. Under Other Opportunities our members also get involved in Shared Learning projects.

Islington U3A now has over 520 members with the number still rising. Come and Join Us
