About Us

U3A Croydon – About Us

Located in the leafy suburbs of Melbourne’s outer east, U3A Croydon opened its doors in 1992. Since then we have grown and evolved to meet the needs of the expanding local seniors population. Anyone who is retired or no longer working full time can become a member.

At U3A Croydon our mission is to provide people in their third age of life with opportunities to stay physically, mentally and socially active. We are run by volunteers who support our members to learn, teach, share, have fun and stay fit in a relaxed, friendly and stimulating environment.

We have:

  • 1000 members
  • 100 courses and
  • 80 tutors

Our volunteers share their knowledge, skills and experience in a range of different roles. In doing so they express the original sense of the word ‘university’ – a community of people who gather together to learn from each other. But we’re not just about learning; our courses include games, physical activities and spirituality classes such as meditation.

Our members enjoy the intellectual engagement, the physical stimulation and the relaxing social environment our courses and activities offer. But for many members, what they value most are the friendships that develop along the way.
