Nightline Lyon

An evening listening service for students in Lyon
Every Thursday to Monday, from 9pm to 2:30am

You have just arrived in Lyon and don’t know anyone yet at your university or school? You don’t know anyone at your school or university? You’d like to confide in fellow students, or simply talk about the last movie you saw on Netflix? Our helpline is here for you. 

Whether you are at university, studying at a specialised school or writing your thesis, we are here to listen to you. 
If you’re not a student yet, there are other helplines you can call: for example SOS help.


We never record or repeat our conversations. Your secrets are safe with us!


You can express your feelings freely: there are no taboo subjects or problems “too small” for us.


We will never ask you who you are, or to share any identifying information.


We are here to listen to you, not to guide you towards a certain decision. Only you decide what you want to say or do.


Our services are free: there are no additional charges for the chat service or the calls and you won’t have to pay anything.


"Since I'm quite an anxious person, I realised that talking to others could be quite a relief. I really understood the concept and I thought it was a great initiative".

Floriane Varais-Kurtz, President of Nightline Lyon
