Join Melbourn & District U3A online - the form
Welcome! Membership of our U3A is open to those who are retired or semi-retired. There is no lower age limit for membership.
About us
Melbourn and District U3A was formed in 1994 and today has around 500 members from South Cambridgeshire and North Hertfordshire. There are 33 subject or activity groups covering art, music, languages or local history together with excursions and leisure activities such as yoga and walking.

These groups are informal, mutual and self-help in nature rather than the lecturer and student format. In some groups, the leader brings professional experience and in others group members share the role to build skill or understanding. A leader of one group is often a member of other groups so indeed we are all learning. And there are no exams! Newcomers are welcomed regardless of experience or knowledge. Meetings are held in the morning or afternoon, in people's houses or in local halls.

We hold a monthly general meeting, with a guest speaker, on the third Wednesday of the month at 2.45 pm. This is also an opportunity for social exchange over tea and coffee. These monthly meetings are held in the hall of Melbourn Village College at which there is ample parking space. You are welcome to visit the first time as a guest and our 'greeters' will connect you with what is on offer. (Do check our website before your first visit). There is no meeting in December and occasionally we meet at Foxton Village Hall.

By the way, ‘Third age’ arises from considering childhood as the first age; adulthood as the second. The Third Age, or retirement, allows time to indulge in interests or expand horizons.

Melbourn & District U3A (formerly “university of the third age”) is affiliated to a national organisation called the Third Age Trust. The Trust is a registered charity which provides benefits to all U3As by being a conduit for an interchange of ideas and other ways. Our subscription includes an amount due to the Trust.

Everyone who is no longer in full time employment is welcome to join. A list of groups is nearby. You may decide to join one or more of them or just attend their monthly meeting. To join our U3A, complete the application form below or read on for other ways to join and pay.
