What is Nightline?

Nightline is a completely independent listening, support and information service run for and by students. It aims to provide every student in Oxford with the opportunity to talk to someone in confidence. No contact is made with any outside agency, academic department or anyone else; you don't even have to give your name.

Don't be afraid to call

Nightline has no political, religious, moral or sexual bias, so we're the ideal people to talk to if there's anything you're not sure you can talk to your friends about. We don't claim to be able to solve people's problems, but we care about whatever is on your mind. We can listen and talk, and we won't moralise, criticise or judge you in any way.

We are here for everyone

Nightline is not only there for people with major problems; sometimes you may feel like a break from the routine and just want to chat to someone. Also we have an information bank containing, for example, the numbers of taxi firms, addresses of clinics, and bus or train timetables. You can ask to see a man or a woman if you have a preference, and you are welcome either to phone or to come down to our flat for a cup of tea or coffee.

*In accordance with the Terrorism Act 2000 (as amended 2001, 2005 and 2006) we are legally required to report any threat of terrorism to the police or other relevant authority.
