Nightline Association

Nightlines provide an anonymous and confidential through-the-night listening, emotional support, information and supplies service, run by students for students at their university.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Nightlines provide an anonymous and confidential through-the-night listening, emotional support, information and supplies service, run by students for students at their university.

    Whilst the first Nightline was set up in 1970 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.

    Nightlines offer support via telephone email, instant messaging, or in person and many offer information & supplies such as pregnancy tests, condoms, & attack alarms.

    Nightline is confidential, anonymous, non-directive, non-judgemental and non-advisory. If you're a student at a university with a Nightline, you can call about anything you like. We won't tell you what to do, but no matter what it's about, we'll listen.

    The Nightline association is the international umbrella charity for university Nightline services. It works to provide advice, guidance and support to raise the quality, profile and number of Nightlines available to students. It is made possible by a board of Trustees & volunteers and just one member of staff.
