Welcome to Buckhurst Hill U3A
About the U3A
U3A stands for the University of the Third Age an organisation which was founded during the 1970s in France. Now world-wide, it is for people in their "Third Age" - their retirement or semi-retirement age.
The 1000th U3A opened in late 2016 and there are now more than 420,000 members in the UK. The U3A is apolitical, non-denominational, and non- profit making and is run by the members for the members.
The video at the bottom of this page will tell you more about the U3A and some of the people who belong to it.
