Summary of Aims and Objectives

Nightline is a confidential listening and information service run by students of Cardiff University, the University of South Wales, Cardiff Metropolitan University and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama for students at these institutions. We do not take calls from anyone who is not a current student at one of these institutions.

Nightline provides a confidential listening, emotional support and information service. 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. Students 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.

Callers come to see us about anything and everything but common topics for students to discuss include academic stress, depression, loneliness, eating disorders, arguments with flatmates, career path, sexual abuse, worries about a friend, bereavement, relationship breakdown, sexuality, abortion, alcohol and drug abuse, family problems, discrimination, suicidal thoughts, disability, housing concerns, bullying, self harm, debt… There is no problem too big or too small – if it’s bothering a student, Nightline volunteers will be there to listen. Our volunteers don’t have the answers – they’re trained to actively listen, to help students come to their own solution or resolution. Nightline will listen for as long as students want to talk.


We can provide information and offer a listening service to students. Our service is non-directive, non-judgmental and non-advisory. A problem shared is a problem halved.


Any current student may ring.
