Nightline provides a confidential listening, emotional support, information and supplies service, run by students for students, at the University of Essex. We work to improve student wellbeing and are open at night when no other university welfare services are available.
The founding concept behind Nightline is a simple one: students find it easier to talk to other students. University is a time of many changes and challenges and being able to talk to a peer - someone who understands what you're going through at your university and can empathise - can and does make a difference. This concept has grown from one student's bedroom to a fully dedicated service staffed by over ninety volunteers throughout the term.
Students at Essex University can talk to us about anything they like. We won't judge and we won't tell them what to do, but no matter what it's about, we'll listen. Nightline is confidential and anonymous; students don't have to tell us anything about themselves, not even their name.
Nightline is open from 10pm to 8am, every night of term.
Location: Keynes Tower, Flat 1, North Campus. Walk around to the back of the tower to find our entrace.
