About Us

For over 25 years and with over 900 members we are at the heart of Chichester life for the retired and semi-retired

Chichester U3A is an exciting self-help movement for people in the Third Age who live in or near the City.  It offers the opportunity to pursue learning for sheer enjoyment and for its own sake.  It is a self-funded Educational Charity.

We are a lively and friendly group offering a wide range of creative, study, physical and leisure activities.
