Open 20:00-08:00 (during termtime)

Nightline is a confidential, anonymous listening and information service provided by student volunteers. Our service provides a safe environment in which our users feel able to talk about their concerns and feelings without fear of judgment. We uphold no political, religious, ethnic or cultural bias. 

  • Listening: 0114 22 (28787)
    A non-judgmental, friendly and empathetic ear. Whether it be to talk through a concern, simply have a chat. No problem is too big or small and we’ll always listen, not lecture.
  • Information: 0114 22 (28788)
    We are a non-advisory service, but do provide information. Anything from take-away and taxi numbers to specialist helplines.
  • E-listening: nightline@sheffield.ac.uk
    Prefer to email? Any time, day or night. Our ‘anonymiser’ program ensures that volunteers do not know your email address. We aim to reply to emails within 48 hours, and this service continues outside termtime.
  • Instant Messenger (IM): http://www.sheffieldnightline.co.uk/p/our-blog.html

Similar to our e-listening service, contact details are made anonymous to ensure all conversations are 100% confidential. Replies are instant. Open 8pm-12am during termtime.

NB: To ensure support is of the highest standard, we only talk to one person at a time. If you cannot get through to us immediately please wait in the automated queue, try again later, or use one of our other services.

Calls are free from all university phones - just use the extension number in brackets. The number is also on the back of your UCard.
