Welcome


Can’t sleep?

Welcome to Nightline.


Greater Manchester Nightline is a confidential listening and information service run for students by students. We offer anonymous, non judgemental and non-directive support for all callers, regardless of the situation. You can talk about anything you like. As well as the listening service, Nightline can also provide information, such as contact numbers for a wide range of places. Just give Nightline a ring and ask – it’s as easy as that!

Our IM and Nightmail services are open!


You can use our services now on IM between 8pm and 2am during term time. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, opening times have been reduced to end at 2am, and phone lines will remain closed until further notice. Keep an eye on our website and social media for updates.

Our IM service is closed for maintenance while we focus on reopening our phones. Nightmail will remain open as usual. If you would like to talk to someone, you can contact Samaritans at 116 123.

Or, you can contact us through Nightmail 24 hours a day, every day of the year, even outside of term time. Nightmail is our email service run by specially trained volunteers.

Who can you talk to while our phone line is closed? If you would like to speak to anyone over the phone whilst our phone lines are closed, students should contact their universities for the most appropriate local support services. You can also contact Samaritans by calling 116 123, or via email: [email protected] This is a free, 24 hour listening service, which can offer support both in and outside of opening hours.
