Welcome to U3A Northern Illawarra!

U3A (the University of the Third Age) is a worldwide movement where people in their “third age” – active or semi-retirement after childhood and employment – from all walks of life get together to teach and learn from each other, in a friendly social atmosphere.

U3A Northern Illawarra is located in Thirroul, in the northern suburbs of Wollongong, set between the sparkling Pacific Ocean and the Illawarra Escarpment.

We offer a range of activities throughout the weeks of school terms – see our “Programs” and “Newsletter” pages for details.

Research has shown that as we get older, it is important to maintain our physical and mental health, and that mental stimulation and social interaction contribute to positive ageing and wellbeing. So join us now! U3A keeps your mind alive!

U3A Northern Illawarra is proudly supported by Wollongong City Council.
