Membership of The Universities Retired Staff Association (URSA) which was formed in 1983, is open to retired staff (and their partners) of both the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University.
The aims of the Association are to promote the fellowship and well-being of retired members of staff and to maintain their interest in University affairs.
Meetings, with a speaker, are held monthly from October to April on Tuesday afternoons at 2.15pm in the Chaplaincy Centre, 1 Bristo Square (opposite McEwan Hall).
During the session there are also three visits to local places of interest, a summer outing in June and a Christmas lunch.
There are 3 Newsletters sent out per year.
