About Nightline

Nightline is a confidential listening and information service run by students for students at the University of Exeter. Available from 8pm until 8am throughout the night during term time, we are here to listen to anything you'd like to talk about, whether that be exam stress, mental health issues or because you’re walking home alone and feel some company would be useful.


We give students time and space to talk through whatever is on their mind. We are here for you to discuss anything you want, whether it is something that is troubling you, something you've never told anyone before, or whether you're just looking to chat about your day or some company on your walk home from a night out. Nightline is completely anonymous, confidential and prejudice free, so whatever your beliefs or circumstances, you can talk freely in confidence that you will not be judged. Nightline is here to listen whoever you are.


Nightline is your university 118 service. We have a huge range of service information for you and also provide a wide variety of university-specific information. We can provide details for a variety of services such as local electricians, takeaways, as well as health and support services such as Smoking Quitline, GUM clinic, Victim Support, and Rape Crisis. Call us for anything. If you need a number, directions home, or even if you've locked yourself out of halls and don't know who to call, we can help. If information is what you're looking for, that's what we will provide. We won't ask you to talk about anything more with us.


As mentioned above, we are always looking to recruit enthusiastic and conscientious students into our ever-growing group of volunteers. Nightline is a fantastic society to be involved with whether you are an undergraduate or postgraduate student here at Exeter. Not only is the time our members give hugely appreciated by committee, the Guild, and the student body, but hours spent volunteering with us are also eligible for the Exeter Award Scheme.

No prior experience is needed, although an open mind and a friendly phone manner is definitely handy! Full training is provided, and at no point are trainees obliged to continue their work with the service. As a Nightline volunteer, you will always have the full support of committee and members alike, and full training can be acquired at your own pace.

If you feel you have something to offer by applying to volunteer with us, contact us via email and we will contact you with details of our next training event.

If you have any questions regarding volunteering with Exeter Nightline, please contact us.
