University of the Third Age - Wandsworth


Welcome to Wandsworth U3A

The U3A (University of the Third Age) 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.

Wandsworth U3A is one of over 1,000 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 Third age 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.

Wandsworth U3A was founded in 2002 and currently has over 330 members. We are a friendly, welcoming group.

We hold a monthly general meeting, normally with a guest speaker, and currently have over 50 interest groups.

Our monthly members' meetings take place in the PENFOLD CENTRE, 1 Neville Gill Close, London SW18 4TJ (opposite King Georges Park). The Penfold Centre is behind the Southside shopping centre, next door to a NCP car park and is served by buses coming into Wandsworth Town (28,37,39,44,87,156,170,220,270,337).

If you would like to come along to meet us, prospective members are welcome to attend one of the monthly members' meetings. For details, see the events page.
