Nightline is “an anonymous, nonjudgmental peer listening hotline that primarily serves the Barnard College and Columbia University communities and their affiliates. Nightline offers a safe space for callers to talk, operating by the mottos, ‘We are here to listen" and "We are here to get you through the night.” Nightline supports its callers by providing both a listening and referral service.[1]

Students and Columbia community members should call Nightline if they need an anonymous, non-judgmental, and extensively trained peer to listen to them talk about any number of issues ranging from relationship problems or stress about midterms to issues surrounding sexual identity, eating disorders, suicidal thoughts or feelings of depression. Nightline reminds Columbia/Barnard students: “You don't need to be going through a crisis to call; sometimes it just helps to talk to somebody.”


  1. Call 212-854-7777.
  2. Nightline operates between 10pm and 3am nightly.
  3. A trained, anonymous, and non-judgmental peer will pick up the phone.
  4. Your peer can support you either by listening or providing you with a referral.

Please see the Nightline official site for more details.
