About Us


U3A Melbourne City. is the oldest University of the Third Age in Australia, established as a result of a public meeting in July 1984. We are an incorporated association, currently with approximately1500 members. We are located in the Melbourne CBD, although members travel in from many suburbs and some from outlying districts.

In keeping with the U3A ethos, we are a self-funded, voluntary organisation formed to provide learning opportunities to members aged 50 plus who are retired or not working full-time.

Our courses cover a wide range of stimulating subjects. Details can be found on the MyU3A page and also in the current issue of our newsletter City News - which also advertises social activities and other items of interest.

A critical feature of all U3As is the self-determination and self-help principle. A committee of management is elected annually from the membership, and all administration and tutoring is carried out by volunteers. There is an expectation that every member will, at some time, contribute to the extent that they are able.
