UCC Niteline is a listening service for students run by students . We are a non- judgemental, non directive and confidential listening service that operates via free phone and instant messaging. We are UCC students trained by the Cork Samaritans and are there for any UCC student who needs somebody to talk to.

Both the telephone and instant messaging service operate every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 9pm-1am throughout the academic year. We are also open Sunday nights 9pm-1am for March 2019 as a trial period for potenial extension of our hours pending demand. This excludes Sunday March 17th due to Saint Patricks Day.
