U3A is the University of the Third Age, which is the age of active retirement, coming after the age of youth and work and home making. University is a loose term - there are no academic requirements for membership and no exams!
U3A is a worldwide self-help organisation promoting learning for personal enjoyment and satisfaction.
Brisbane U3A is one of many similar U3A organisations in Australia. Formed in 1986, we are a totally volunteer organisation, and provide leisure and educational courses to local seniors. We have over 3100 members and offer more than 210 courses each year, all of these at a low cost.
Our City Campus classes are held at our own premises at 97 Creek Street Brisbane, and our new rooms at 344 Queen St Brisbane, just a short walk from bus, train or ferry. Other city classes are held at various locations in the CBD.
We also have classes in surrounding suburbs and districts - in Logan (our largest district outside the city), Southside, Northside, Westside and Wynnum. See the Class Details page for information on district classes.
