Volunteering with Exeter Nightline
We recruit volunteers twice a year, at the start of the Autumn and Spring Terms. This is usually around September and January.
We look to recruit enthusiastic and conscientious students who are willing to give up a couple of nights a term to man the phones (you don’t have to stay awake all night, don’t worry!) or to assist the society in other ways, such as publicity.
Exeter Student Nightline is a fantastic group to be involved with and a great way to give back to the student community whether you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate, and the hours spent volunteering with us count towards the Exeter Award Scheme.

APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED - our next recruitment window will be in January
We welcome applications from all members of the university's student body. We are particularly keen to receive applications from currently under-represented groups in Exeter Nightline. This includes postgraduate, international, and male students, as well as Black, Asian and minority ethnic students and students from the LGBTQ+ community. Please note that we are unable to take final year students in January intakes, due to time restraints on the training process before these students graduate.
