Planning for a Remote Fall Semester - Survey Results

From June 25 to July 11, 2020, Student Services surveyed new and returning degree-seeking students about their needs and preferences for the remote Fall 2020 semester. Specifically, the five key objectives of this survey were to determine:

  1. Key information about students’ living situations;
  2. Access to technological tools;
  3. Access to academic supports;
  4. Student needs and wellbeing; and
  5. Methods for creating connections and community during a COVID-19 reality.

The survey was circulated to 31,500 students and had a 30% response rate. Results have and will continue to be used by services and Faculties to provide you, McGill students, with programs and services that meet your needs.
