Description of Service

Limesurvey is an interactive web application for creating, managing, and monitoring online surveys. It can create surverys in many formats for public or controlled-access usage, and the survey owner can download the responses in CSV, SPSS, and other formats.

Unlike public web offerings (eg SurveyMonkey):

  • LimeSurvey is not restricted or limited in size
  • LimeSurvey runs on a address
  • LimeSurvey stores its data inside UCC
  • LimeSurvey does not include advertisements

Staff and postgraduate students doing surveys as part of their research should use this service, not an external one.

You need authentication to use this: email with your staff number or student number to get a username and password.

There is extensive documentation and help on Limesurvey's own site.

Please Note

Surveys to be sent to students must be sent to, not to the ALLSTUDENTS mailing list. See allstudents and surveys. If you have problems using the survey address, please contact SIT.

Lime Survey must not be used to collect personal data within the meaning of the Data Protection Acts or the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) without the prior written approval of the Information Compliance section of the Office of Corporate and Legal Affairs (OCLA).

Questions regarding data collection, data protection, and data privacy should be addressed to the Office of Corporate and Legal Affairs.
