Nightline is a listening service for students, run by trained student volunteers. You can call us to talk about any problem, ask a few questions, or get something off your chest. Nightline is confidential and anonymous, so you don't have to tell us anything about yourself, not even your name. The content of the call never leaves Nightline.
Make sure you're following Nightline on Instagram and Facebook - @surreynightline
You can talk to us about any problem, big or small, in complete confidence. We aren't here to judge or advise you, just to listen and support you through whatever it is you're going through.
You can find our phone number or instant messaging service at https://www.ussu.co.uk/supportz/nightline. Just make sure you’re logged in with your University email!
We are now taking volunteer applications for Nightline volunteers (Publicity and Listening)
You can also volunteer with us as a Listening Volunteer (someone who takes calls) or as a Publicity Ambassador (someone who helps to promote the service)! To apply, just click here.
Welfare Watch volunteers are here to help you during most Rubix nights out or Students’ Union events, to sober up in a safe environment and help you get home safely. If on a night out you need help or are looking after someone who does then you can find volunteers in the Front Room (just below Rubix), wearing the pink Hi-Vis. Whether you've been kicked out, not let in, are stressed or just need a breather and someone to talk to, go say hi to our Student Volunteers!
