WELCOME TO HOUNSLOW U3A
THE U3A is an exciting and unique educational movement for people no longer in full-time work.It offers the opportunity to pursue learning for sheer enjoyment and for its own sake.
Hounslow U3A is one of over 1000 U3As in Britain and many more world-wide. In spite of its name it is not a University - no fixed courses, no exams, only a coming together of people in their 3rd age (over 50 and not in full-time employment) who wish to resume old passions, or develop new interests now that they have more time.
One of the main aims of the U3A is the continuing education of older people. To this end we run a range of interest groups and expect members to find at least one which they would like to join. Through these shared learning experiences new friendships are formed.
Hounslow U3A was founded in 1991 and currently has about 160 members. We are a friendly, welcoming group. We hold general meetings twice a month, except in August and currently have 27 interest groups.
We hold our twice-monthly general meetings at Holy Trinity Church in Hounslow High Street opposite the Hounslow Treaty Centre. It is well placed for public transport.
