McMaster LimeSurvey Instances

There are several instances of LimeSurvey around the University. The following information relates to the VPR-supported Central instance and the Faculty of Science-support Science instance. It currently does not reflect the compatibility and compliance of other McMaster-run LimeSurvey instances (e.g. CSU, Engineering, Library, etc.). We will update the table as we receive this information.

NOTE: You can use either instance for an MREB survey as long as your survey meets the MREB requirements for a McMaster research online survey.
