Welcome to Newcastle U3A

Learning opportunities for retirees

Are you retired or semi-retired?   Let yourself grow through U3A

U3A is a self-help international organisation, where retired and semi-retired people provide courses for each other.  At Newcastle U3A (NU3A) our courses range from academic, skill, physically active and special interest classes, to relaxed social get-togethers.  Browse our Frequently Asked Questions or Newsletters , or view our 30th anniversary videoOlder but Bolder’, for a sneak peak.

Looking for something extra in Term 4? See what’s still available in the program V3.1 (dated 21 July) and go to How to Enrol to apply online.  If you are not yet a member for 2022, go to How to join and pay the midyear membership fee before enrolling. Term 4 starts 17 October.  If you are enrolled in a full year course, you do not need to re-enroll.

See the Calendar for details and how to book our social get-togethers, excursions and opportunities to connect with other members. See Venue Maps for directions to venues.

We ask you to PLEASE WEAR A MASK TO INDOOR SESSIONS. Also, to attend face-to-face classes in 2022, we:

  • comply with government COVID rules and give priority to the welfare of members
  • expect participants to be fully vaccinated, unless medically exempt. Some tutors may require evidence. Unvaccinated members may choose from our zoom options.
  • provide hand sanitiser and disinfectant wipes
  • provide venue-specific detail in our COVID Safety Plan .  nb. Members must assess their own circumstances to determine if face-to-face attendance is appropriate and do not attend if presenting covid-like symptoms. 

The Membership fee for 2022 was $60 for the calendar year.  Financial members can attend as many classes as you choose (subject to class limits).  If joining for the first time in 2022, please pay the $45 midyear membership fee and apply to become a member before enrolling.
