A Warm Welcome!

Are you no longer in full-time employment and looking for interesting and stimulating daytime activities in the company of others?

Then joining Cheltenham University of the Third Age (U3A) may be just what you need!

Each month we hold an Open Meeting which is very well attended, often with a speaker.

Our aim is to provide opportunities for our members to meet for discussion, study, and learning on a wide variety of subjects or to take part in outdoor activities such as walking. The details of what is available can be found on the "Our Groups" page.

Please use the links on the left to navigate your way around the site.

Message from the Database Manager and Renewals Secretary: -

I shall be away for the whole of April so no Renewals will be processed during that time. Therefore, I will need to receive any renewals by the 27th March to ensure that you receive your membership card before I go away.

If you know of anyone applying to join for the first time please let them know the above dates.


NEW MEMBERS can join by clicking the button "How to Join......" on the left if applying by post or click the link below if using the online option.


EXISTING MEMBERS can renew on-line by entering your details as provided when you first joined, as the information has to match the U3A database.
