London Nightline is an anonymous listening and information service run by students, for students.


You can talk to a trained volunteer about anything – big or small – in complete confidence.

We won’t judge you or tell you how to run your life: we’ll simply listen to whatever’s on your mind.

We are all students who have undergone extensive training and who understand that university life isn’t always plain sailing.
