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 just $35 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-$50 each. Learn more about OLLI-UW programs.

Founded in 2006 through the generous support of the Osher Foundation, OLLI-UW currently has more than 1,000 members. It offers programs on the UW campus and at various locations throughout the Puget Sound region.
