University of The Third Age (U3A) -Farnborough & District


Monthly Meetings are open to all members, and are held at the Farnborough College of Technology at 3pm. Topics cover a wide range of subjects likely to be of general interest. Other additional social events, such as Quiz Night, Xmas get-together, and the AGM, are held during the year where members from the different groups can meet and socialise.

The Farnborough and District U3A has over 80 groups available to members. The group listings are available to view in the U3A Farnborough & District Yearbook on their website. The groups are mainly led by members and offer a very wide range of leisure, social & educational activities.

If you are concerned that the group that interests you might not be the right "fit" for you personally, email or phone the Group Contact (details in the Yearbook), for more information. You can also request a" taster session", but do check that there is space in the group for you. The subscription year follows the academic year. If enrolling in August, you simply indicate on the application form which groups you wish to join. and we allocate places as fairly as possible according to availability and demand. If you wish to join a group after the start of the subscription year, you are advised to check that there is space in that group prior to enrolment. We recommend that you email or phone the person shown as the Contact for that group in the Yearbook.
