Due to Covid-19 we are operating a largely reduced service during the 2020-21 academic year. More details on how to contact us, as well as what services and nights we'll be open, will be put up on our Facebook page and our website as soon as we can. We are trying our best to open as much as is safe, legal and follows the safety standards of UEA. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused and are working hard to try to find new ways to re-open without lowering the standards of the Nightline service. If you are in crisis, we recommend that you call the Samaritans on 116 123 or another appropriate helpline - you can find a list here.
Our website address is:
If you cannot get through to us on an open night, we may be engaged with another contact. We only take listening contacts through the contact methods listed as available on our website. We do not take listening contacts through social media.

Confidential. Anonymous. Supportive. Whatever is on your mind, talk to Nightline.

Nightline is run for students, by students, and you can talk to us about anything you like. Often people feel that what they’re experiencing isn’t serious or important enough to talk to someone about, but Nightline is here for you no matter what is going on. If it’s on your mind, we want to hear about it. We are a confidential and anonymous organisation so whatever you tell us stays within the organisation. 

Our volunteers are trained to listen, not to lecture.

We don't give advice, but we are here to help you talk through whatever is on your mind in a non-judgemental setting. You can contact us via our many contact methods, and if you drop in to talk to us, we can also provide you with complimentary tea and biscuits.

We also are able to provide basic signposting to UEA and Norwich services. We are confidential, so you can feel safe sharing things with us. We’ll never ask your name. We’ll never tell you what you should do.

We are well established and award winning.

Norwich Nightline is a certified to operate safely and legally in line with the Good Practice Guidelines of the National Nightline Association. We've been around at UEA since 1972 and know what it means to listen, as well of the importance of being listened to.

- Won Peer Support Group of the Year, 2017. (UEASU)

- Won Peer Support Group of the Year, 2018. (UEASU)

- Nominated Most Improved Nightline of the Year, 2018. (Nightline Association)

In the mean time, registering your interest with us is a good idea.
