Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the UW


Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Washington (OLLI-UW) brings together adults over 50 who are interested in exploring intellectual and cultural topics, sharing their experiences and talents, and meeting new people.

An annual membership fee of $40 lets you register for a range of thought-provoking courses and special events, as well as attend free lunchtime talks and study groups. Often taught by current and retired UW faculty, OLLI-UW courses charge an additional fee of $30–$75 each. Learn more about OLLI-UW programs.
