McMaster Students Union

Student Representative Assembly

The Student Representative Assembly (SRA), the governing body of the MSU, is composed of 35 undergraduate students elected by their peers, inside each academic faculty. Together, they work to provide the best possible MSU services and departments, represent and address the concerns of undergraduate students, and lobby the University to improve McMaster’s academic quality. The MSU exists to represent you and to help build a better community for all students.

Expandable List

SRA meetings are held biweekly and are scheduled to occur on Sundays at 5:00 pm (unless otherwise noted) in Council Chambers (GH 111).

SRA meetings are open, public forums, to which anyone can attend without invitation or reservation. Agendas and supporting documentation for SRA meetings are made available to the public the Wednesday before each meeting on the MSU website under Minutes & Documents. People can watch SRA meetings live via the SRA Facebook page.

Please note, during the COVID-19 pandemic, SRA meetings will take place virtually, but the live stream is still available via Facebook.
