Northern Ireland charity number: NIC103317
Welcome to East Antrim U3A (University of the Third Age). We are based in Carrickfergus, Co Antrim and our members come from Larne area, Ballyclare, Newtownabbey, North Belfast and all areas in between.
We are a charity, a friendly self-help organisation for people no longer in full time employment, providing educational, creative and leisure opportunities in a friendly environment. It consists of U3As all over the world, which are run entirely by their own members. More information can be found on our About Us page.
Locally we have over three dozen interest groups, which you will find out about, by visiting the group page. Once there click an underlined word to take you to that group’s details.
Please feel free to explore our site and if you have any questions please contact the office by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 028 9336 1110

How to join us
We have a monthly meeting, at Joymount Hall (Behind Carrickfergus library) on the third Monday of each month from 2.00-4.00, where about a third of the membership meet, have a chat, listen to an interesting guest speaker, have a cup of tea or coffee and hear news of any developments and group activities. So you can pop along unannounced as a visitor and see if you like us well enough to become a member. If you already know about us, then you can download a Membership Application Form, complete and send it or bring it to the office.
The annual membership fee is only £20 (reducing quarterly as the year progresses), though inevitably further costs will occur for some individual activities where we have to employ an outside tutor, but most activities are free of charge. All organised activities are fully insured.
