What service does Nightline Zurich provide?

We support you, no matter what is concerning you! Daily stressors, fear of upcoming exams or aimless? We listen to you, provide information about study-related matters or refer you to specialists if required.

We are here for you during the late evening hours: When bad feelings and fears often become pressing and other conversation partners and specialists aren’t available. You can freely speak to us about anything that is worrying you.

At Nightline Zurich students of different academic institutions in Zurich, semesters and disciplines are working on a voluntary basis. Right now our team consists of about 40 students of ETH, UZH and ZHAW. Therefore all members of Nightline Zurich know the daily hassles of student life from their own personal experience.
