East Grinstead is in the High Weald a few miles north of Ashdown Forest. It is in West Sussex, but right on the border of Surrey and very close to East Sussex and Kent. East Grinstead U3A (University of the Third Age) draws its membership from all four counties.

East Grinstead U3A began in 1995. It has a membership (2018/19) of almost 800 (as of 30th September 2018), with more applications in the pipeline, and has 55 groups of various sizes catering for a wide range of interests.(See Groups section).

U3As are open to all people no longer in full time employment. We give them opportunities to keep active, to meet like-minded people and to continue to use and develop their knowledge and skills. We pursue learning not for qualifications, but for enjoyment. Activities are organised by the members. Sources of information on which members may base their contributions might include the Internet, Public Libraries, East Grinstead Museum

As a U3A we are part of a national network of self-managed organisations.
