About NLU3A

NLU3A is the North London U3A with meetings in Finchley, Highgate, Muswell Hill and nearby areas. It is one of over a thousand 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 interests. Very importantly, NLU3A also provides the opportunity to meet new people through our Interest Groups, events and monthly meetings.
