What is U3A?

U3A (or University of the 3rd Age) is a worldwide, self-help organisation for retirees. This university has no professors or exams, just good social fun and learning. The 3rd age comes after your 2nd age (working life) and the 1st age (schooling).

U3A Maitland is based in Maitland NSW and is managed by its members for its members. $50 covers full membership for a year and entitles you to attend as many of our 40 plus courses / activities as you wish.
