Crawley U3A is a learning co-operative of older people which enables members to share many educational, creative and leisure activities. Members learn from each other in various interest groups through sharing their knowledge, skills and experience. Please click on GROUPS to see what is currently available. If you have an interest that isn’t listed but would be happy to share your knowledge with others, you might like to lead a group yourself. New members are always welcome at any time of year – just bring enthusiasm!

If you would like to know more about becoming a member, please click on New Membership Application form which shows our current membership fees or, if you have any questions, please click on CONTACT Membership Secretary or T: 07555 021879.

Most of our groups meet in venues in or near Crawley town centre and are convenient to bus routes. There is an attendance fee charged to cover the costs of room hire. A monthly talk takes place at Friary Hall, just round the corner from Crawley Bus Station, on the second Friday of every month, except August, from 2.30pm to 4pm. There is time for tea and chat too!

We offer a warm welcome to all and, if you have read this far, do get in touch! For General/Group Enquiries please click on CONTACT Groups Co-ordinator or T: 07770 661388.


Please don’t think that you need formal qualifications to join this ‘university’ as none are sought nor offered. Learning is for its own sake, with enjoyment being the primary motive, not for gaining qualifications or awards.

Crawley U3A and 39 other U3As belong to the Sussex U3A Network (SUN) and are able to take part in a number of Study Days, Away Days and other events held in various parts of Sussex.
