The University of the Third Age offers all older people a variety of opportunities to use their knowledge, skills and experience and to acquire new ones in an informal atmosphere where exams are a thing of the past. Joining us is a simple procedure, no searching questions are asked, it is sufficient that you want to be part of our great association.


Alton Town Hall

Alton U3A has been in existence for more than ten years and some of our founding members are still active with us. From small beginnings we have grown to a total of around 400 members. Looking at our list of Study Groups will give you an idea of our range of activities.

Monthly meetings, which are held in the Community Centre on the third Friday of most months at 2:PM, are open to visitors. Attending these meetings are a good way of seeing at first hand how the U3A may be just right for you. Visitor are assured a warm welcome. Monthly meetings are held from September through to May.
