NLU3A, something for everyone

About NLU3A

NLU3A is the North London U3A with meetings in Finchley, Highgate, Muswell Hill and nearby areas. It is one of over 1000 U3As across the country. Each U3A is about people coming together to continue their educational, social and creative interests in a friendly and informal environment.

We can help you by introducing you to new skills and subjects or even persuade you to share your own specialist skills and, very importantly, the opportunity to meet new people through our interest groups, events and monthly meetings.
