About Niteline

Given the current university shutdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are unable to operate our free phone service. However, our instant messaging service remains fully operational and is open every Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 9pm-1am throughout the academic year.


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

UCC Niteline strongly adheres to the principles of anonymity, confidentiality, non- judgemental listening, being non-directive and non-advisory. Niteline is there to listen to any problems that you may have whether it's related to your course, your personal life or if you just want someone to talk to.

Whatever is on your mind, we are here to listen.
