Faculty of Music Undergraduate Association (FMUA)

  • Facebook

Each year, a board of directors is elected by the students. A team of FMUA members will be tasked with serving the students for the academic year and will be responsible for ensuring each student of the faculty is satisfied with their education and life in the faculty.


We provide services and events to benefit students both academically and socially, including tutoring & writing supports, mental health & wellness services, an annual benefit concert, and semi-formal.

The FMUA also provides financial aid such as bursaries, grants, and awards, aiding students' musical and extra-curricular endeavours. This includes the commissions, which tend to the extra needs of students, falling under the Equity & Accessibility, Health & Wellness, Commuter, and Student Life commissions.


The FMUA funds clubs, which are student-led and promote well-rounded social life outside of class. Clubs such as PWLMNF give students an informal environment to perform and share their music, while also giving students opportunities to socialize with their fellow peers. Students are welcome to join existing clubs, as well as starting new clubs of their own.
