Welcome to Oxford U3A

The University of the Third Age

Who we are

We are an organisation of retired 'but not retiring' people who come together to learn (this is the original meaning of the word 'University'). We do not run formal courses or examine or award certificates and no qualifications are necessary to join.

  • Weekly talks are held at Rewley House on Thursdays.  These are free for Oxford U3A members but you are welcome to attend for 2 as a guest.
  • Our programme has complete details of forthcoming talks.
  • Here is a map to help you find us.
  • An application form for new membership can be obtained from the Membership Secretary.  Please send details of your name, address and phone number to membership@u3aoxford.org.uk
  • If you would like to subscribe to Third Age Matters magazine please email the secretary who will give you further details about this very interesting magazine.
