Available only during university term time. Phone line: 8pm-8am || IM: 8pm-12am


Our overnight instant messaging (IM) trial period is now over. However, stay tuned for further updates surrounding this!


Applications are now closed! Stay tuned as we review applications. We shall recruit new volunteers from September-October 2019.



In addition to our information and listening phone lines you can also get in touch using our e-listening service. We provide exactly the same support, just using a computer.
You can also access the service whilst abroad so you can get in touch if you are studying overseas.

Instant Messaging

Open 8pm until midnight, you can speak to us by clicking the blue box to the right, or by following this link.

Our IM service is accessed via the above link and is completely confidential and anonymous. We only talk to one person at a time though to ensure you get the highest quality support from our volunteer. If you receive a “busy” message we are currently speaking to another caller. However you can choose to wait in a queue, try again later, or use one of our other services.

It is possible that additional Nightline volunteers may view your conversation, for training and support purposes only.

Please note that unfortunately, we are unable to accept calls for those aged under 16 years old. However, we are able to provide information on alternative services more appropriate for the needs of these callers.


You can also contact us at any time during the day or night by dropping us an email.
Our volunteers will reply during our operating times and we aim to get back to you within 48 hours.

Like our phones service, emailing is completely confidential and anonymous and no-one will know you have emailed Nightline. We cannot see your email address so you won’t be identifiable by our volunteers.

If you want to send us an email, get in touch at [email protected].
