Tokyo University of the Arts was founded in May 1949 under the National School Establishment Law (Act No. 150 of 1949) through a merger of Tokyo Fine Arts School (currently the Faculty of Fine Arts) and Tokyo Music School (currently the Faculty of Music). At the time of its establishment, the university comprised ten departments in two faculties, the Faculty of Fine Arts (Departments of Painting, Sculpture, Crafts, Architecture, and Aesthetics and Art History), the Faculty of Music (Departments of Composition, Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, Conducting, and Musicology), as well as the University Library.

The faculties have expanded and been reorganized through the years, resulting in the current organization comprising 14 departments in two faculties; the Faculty of Fine Arts (Departments of Painting, Sculpture, Crafts, Design, Architecture, Inter-Media Art, and Aesthetics and Art History), Faculty of Music (Departments of Composition, Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, Conducting, Traditional Japanese Music, Musicology, and Musical Creativity and the Environment), as well as facilities such as the University Library, the University Art Museum, and the Performing Arts Center.
