How We Do It

Classes & Attendances

  • It is necessary to become a member of U3A Cairns in order to regularly attend classes.  Attendance at each class is $3 for both members and visitors, with morning/afternoon tea available.
  • U3A name badges must be worn for all classes and activities. Visitors may attend any two classes prior to joining, and a Visitor name badge can be collected from the office.
  • Attendance Sheets are to be signed by members and visitors. These are legal documents required for insurance cover and must remain at U3A at all times.
  • As a courtesy to other members and tutors, it is requested that mobile phones are switched off during classes. If expecting an important call, put your phone on vibrate and leave the room to take the call.

U3A Library

Are you an avid reader?  Are you aware, we have two libraries?

  • The General (Fiction) library is for members to take (or donate) clean books, without a borrowing system. There are plenty of books available at the moment, so check them out.
  • The Reference (Non-Fiction) library (in Kitchen 2) is for borrowing only.  Leave your name, membership number and book details in the orange folder.



  • Monthly Bulletins are mailed to all members with an email address.  If you don’t have an email address, we ask that you collect your Bulletin from the office.
