Lifelong Learning in Action

Welcome to the web site of U3A Leeds, devoted to lifelong learning, providing opportunities to share skills and interests by learning together.

U3A Leeds is affiliated to a national organisation, the Third Age Trust. Membership is open to anyone within the Leeds area who is no longer in full time paid employment. There is no age limit.

For information on how to join, please see the Membership page.


Because of the coronavirus emergency, all activities of Leeds U3A are suspended until further notice. We hope to resume as soon as possible, but until then stay at home and stay safe!

UPDATE (28 July)

MASSC is now re-open for business. Groups who meet there will be able to use the centre again subject to the current rules on social distancing. Please book facilities in the usual manner.

As things are easing some groups are resuming activities as best they can and HEART too is open in a limited capacity subject to Government guidelines. The best way to find out what's happening is to keep in contact with your group leaders.

Unfortunately, we cannot restart the Tuesday General meeting yet owing to the social distancing restrictions but as soon as it is safe to do so we will be back up and running.


During the week starting 17 August, members will receive a letter from the Leeds U3A Secretary about the AGM, which will take place at 2.00pm on 29 September. This might take place in MASSC (with restricted numbers attending, with masks and social distancing), or virtually, using Zoom, or possibly by a combination of both those methods.
