Interested in Joining the Oliva U3A?

Or maybe you would like to find out more about the association first?

Whatever the reason -

How to Find out More

If, like me, you suddenly discover this organisation called the U3A (University of the Third Age) and have no idea what it is all about,   then read on.

The Association is for people no longer in full time employment, but  who wish to carry on learning through various physical, academic and fun activities. In other words  you may no longer be working, but you want to keep the body and mind active.


The Oliva U3A was established 2007 with just a handful of founder members sitting around a kitchen table. Now we have nearly 600 members and over 40 different groups and activities.

There are various ways you can find out more about the Oliva U3A:

Email Mick Goy, President, on president@u3a-oliva.org

 Find out more: On market days, which are on Friday's (Thursday on Fiesta days), you will find us outside the back of the Municipal Market near the Thai Chai stall, from 11am for an hour or so. Look out for the U3A poster on the table. Prospective, new and existing members are welcome to come along and find out about the latest groups and activities. A friendly informal gathering for all.

Coffee and Chat: Tuesdays 11am-noon at El Galano cafĂ© (in the warmer months at Pepe's Kiosk on the paseo). Here you can meet Pauline and Mary, two members who can answer questions and talk about what being a member is like - or you can just chat about Oliva’s glorious weather over a coffee.

Monthly General Meeting: Held on the fourth Thursday morning of each month from 10.30am in the Polivalent or in the Library opposite. We have a Meet and Greet team who will answer any questions and introduce you to other members.

We generally have a speaker on a wide variety of subjects that starts at 11am, and although you are welcome to stay, please do not feel obliged.

To find out where the meeting is or who the speaker is please email the Vice President, David Wynne on vice-president@u3a-oliva.org
