Off-Campus Lighting Survey

The Off-Campus Lighting Survey will assist the research of MSU Municipal Affairs Committee in assessing the effectiveness of lighting in the neighbourhoods surrounding the campus of McMaster University.

In the MSU Your City Survey conducted in 2019, 49% of respondents listed lighting as one of their top safety concerns outside their house. As part of our efforts to increase safety in student neighbourhoods, the Municipal Affairs Committee wants to know how visible your neighbourhood is at night due to city lighting.

Based on the information you provide, the Municipal Affairs committee will analyze trends in lighting and make visit to areas where lighting concerns have been flagged by students. The location information you provide is anonymous, and is collected to act as a general guide for our in-person site visits to further assess lighting.

Respondents have the option of sharing their email to be entered to win one of: two $25 gift cards to Union Market, two $25 gift cards to 1280, and one $50 gift card to the Campus Store.
