Calls from Skype go straight through to our phones like any other call – we can’t tell if a call comes from a phone or from a computer.

Anonymous and absolutely private

Talk about your situation without having to reveal anything more than you wish to.

Volunteers do not tell other students that they work for Nightline and keep things absolutely private. Read more about this in our Confidentiality Policy.

We are independent

We are affiliated with the National Nightline Association, but we are not officialy part of ARU or CU. This independence is central to our confidentiality and non-directivity and makes Nightline available to everyone.


We are here to talk about whatever is on your mind. We keep everything you say confidential.


The chat is completely private and anonymous. You don't have to reveal anything more about yourself than you wish to.


We're here to listen, not to judge or lecture.


Although we are also an information service, we are not an advice service. However, we can help you talk things through.

Volunteer with Us

Volunteering with Nightline is a challenging but rewarding experience.

We look for volunteers who are able to listen to the concerns of callers, show empathy, and provide emotional support. We recruit new volunteers once a year in October.
