Herts Network of U3As


Welcome to the Herts Network of U3As website

The Herts Network is a group of 40 U3As (and growing) from across Hertfordshire and into Bedfordshire (Luton and Leighton Linslade). A list of all of our affiliates, and links, are shown on the U3A List page. Simply click on one of the U3A names to link to the local website.

The primary objective of every U3A is to support the further learning of people in the third age (after schooling and working).

The Network was set up to facilitate this through cooperation between the U3As in the network by :

  • providing member U3As with an outlet to offer support and encouragement to one another
  • giving an opportunity to share common problems and achievements
  • and encourage joint leisure activities.

Network meetings are held during the year for committee representatives to discuss network-wide issues relating to U3A. There are also study days and social events for all to participate in. Click on the Events page for details of all forthcoming Network meetings and social events.


A national U3A structure has been put in place to manage over 1,000 U3A's across the country.
Herts Network is part of the Eastern Region, which in turn reports into The U3A Third Age Trust at national level.
