Nightline Association

Nightline is a listening, emotional support, information and supplies service, run by students for students.


The Nightline Association is the international umbrella charity for university Nightline services. It supports its members and our mission is to raise the quality, profile and number of Nightline services so that every student is aware of and has access to confidential emotional peer support.


Nightlines are open at night, run by trained, caring, fellow student volunteers. Nightline can be contacted by phone, face to face, by email or by online chat. There are Nightline services at many universities around the UK and elsewhere. Additional services such as information and supplies are also often available. You can find out more on our about Nightlines page.


Any university student can contact the Nightline at their institution. Whilst the first Nightline was set up to reduce student suicides, Nightlines today receive calls from students troubled by a variety of issues: from academic stress, bullying or debt to loneliness, depression or bereavement; from arguments with flatmates or worries about a friend to addictions, eating disorders or self-harm; from relationship or family problems to sexuality, sexual abuse or abortion. Nothing is too big or small to contact Nightline about – whatever’s troubling a caller, Nightline is there to listen.
