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.

NEWSFLASH: our exciting Term 3 and 4 program will be emailed to members by 2nd July. You can enrol between 5 and 18 July.  We encourage online membership and enrolment. Term 3 starts 25 July.  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.

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.
  • strongly encourage masks for indoor venues, where unable to adequately social distance (and some tutors may require masks)
  • 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. 

Membership fees for 2022 will remain at $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.
