We partner with over 250 institutions around the world, and it’s our favorite feeling knowing that another group of students is being welcomed into our growing peer support community. 


The needs of each institution differ, and it’s invaluable for us to understand why these institutions chose to give their student body access to TalkCampus. We take your needs and feedback on board to continuously improve the student experience on our platform.

So, what are universities and colleges saying about TalkCampus? Check out some of our testimonials from universities and colleges across the globe below.

Open University

London, United Kingdom

Open University's testimonial:

TalkCampus is unique in its offering and fits with the Open University ethos. Our students are based everywhere, often studying alone and sometimes don’t feel like ‘regular’ students - TalkCampus gives them an anonymous, social experience - connecting them with an entire community of academics worldwide. It is not just for those who are currently suffering with their mental health, but for anyone and everyone and to discuss anything they’d like. 


TalkCampus provides an informal, social space but also has the appropriate safeguarding around it which fits nicely alongside our existing, dedicated team. It has an easy-to-use interface, similar to using social media. It is a safe, moderated, anonymous space where students can share exactly what they are feeling without fear or judgment. The fact it is available 24/7 is amazing, as many of our students will be studying outside of standard working hours. 


Our students, tutors and support staff are ready to engage with the platform, and we know it will be an effective tool in managing mental health, one we will gladly recommend to others.

Ellena White

Senior Manager at Open University


Royal Academy of Dance

London, United Kingdom

RAD's testimonial:

“We’re really excited to be launching TalkCampus to our students. Our community of over 400,000 students is based in more than 80 countries all over the world, in an array of time zones and speaks multiple languages. Providing all of our students with available support in their hours of need, wherever they are based and in whatever language they choose, is so important to us. We are always looking for ways to connect our global user base of passionate dancers and to ensure they are supporting one another, and this seems like the perfect way to do that - the fact the platform caters to all of their time zones and provides them with help and connectivity outside of our office hours is a great comfort.”

Suzie Lorimer

Head of Business Management

City of Bristol College

Bristol, United Kingdom

City of Bristol's testimonial:

“The fact that students can access the app or the web platform instantly, at any time of day or night, is really important to us. We know that our students work at their own pace and to their own timescales, so being able to jump on the app and get immediate support when they need it is great. We also know that not all of our students are able to, or may not want to speak to our team, so having an online community readily available to them is a great asset.”

Jonny Elphinstone

University of Newcastle

Callaghan, NSW, Australia

University of Newcastle's testimonial:

“We are excited to be partnering with TalkCampus which will enable us to provide preventative and early intervention mental health support for our students and a supportive environment to engage with like-minded students on a peer-to-peer support platform. The social platform will provide the University of Newcastle students a safe environment to connect with students from universities and colleges around the world, talk about their feelings, create connections and support, increase feelings of belonging, and reduce the stigma around mental health. Also when needed, our students will be supported by a clinical team in real-time and with support provided in 26 languages it can be accessed by our students anywhere in the world.”

North Park University

Chicago, Illinois, United States

North Park University's testimonial:

“We know that for many of our students, reaching out to more traditional forms of mental health support on campus can feel challenging, due to the real stigma that still exists around mental health. We hope that by providing an upstream peer support platform like TalkCampus, students will be more likely to start having open conversations about how they are really feeling. The TalkCampus app will complement our professional on-campus support, but also introduce the 24/7 element which is a valuable addition for our students, including those that are already in touch with our services.”

With our campus being remotely located, the global element of the platform was really appealing for us, and we know that this will be a resource that will be valued by our students”

Joining the TalkCampus network will help the College respond to student needs and allow us to continue serving students in ways that support their progress toward educational and career goals.


"Carteret Community College students have experienced a number of hurdles over the past four years, with Hurricanes Florence and Dorian and then the COVID-19 pandemic. The College recognized the need to provide additional mental health resources to assist students through these and other emergencies.  In addition, as part of their capstone research project, a group of recent Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) graduates provided the College with suggestions for improving student mental health on campus.  Joining the TalkCampus network will help the College respond to these and other student needs and allow us to continue serving students in ways that support their progress toward educational and career goals.

Karen Hudson

University of Bristol

Bristol, United Kingdom

University of Bristol's testimonial:

Mental health matters, and giving our students the tools they need to be resilient and happy is one of the most important things we can do as a university. TalkCampus plays a vital role in that, providing students with an outlet to talk to their peers and also an important opportunity to help others, which we know has its own benefits. 


TalkCampus’ unique peer-to-peer support has created a welcoming, judgment-free digital community that can function as a regular resource or an occasional safety net. The app has come into its own over the past year as students have become more distant from one another during the pandemic. Support from others who may have been through similar circumstances, or are in a similar time and place in their lives is invaluable. 


Crucially, it also gives students license over their own wellbeing: they can choose the time and place at which they access the app, who they talk to, and what they talk about. Currently, nearly 100 University of Bristol students are volunteering on the app, giving up their time to help others, which is hugely gratifying to see. 


I would highly recommend TalkCampus to any university looking to enhance their wellbeing support, or indeed to any individual student looking for an extra bit of help

Kaslik, Lebanon

Western Connecticut State University

Danbury, Connecticut, United States

WCSU's testimonial:

“We here at WCSU have been concerned about our students accessing support services 24/7 to try to manage the unprecedented times they are facing including the COVID-19 pandemic, heightened social injustices incidents,  the urgent economic crises, and lack of adequate health/mental health care.  Dr. Ree Gunter, Director of WCSU Counseling Services, and I were looking for some kind of 24/7 support for our students and were very impressed when we met with TalkCampus.  It was clear to us that this platform was just what we needed to provide 24/7 support focusing on engaging student-to-student connections through an app which is something that students are comfortable using.  Providing an opportunity for this student-to-student experience allowing them to share concerns and challenges in an accessible and safe environment provides us with the confidence that we can reach students in ways we previously were not able to reach them.”

Dr. Walter Cramer

Dean of Students

Illinois College of Optometry

Chicago, Illinois, United States

ICO's testimonial:

“TalkCampus will be a unique benefit in part because of the platform and 24/7/365 access, but probably more importantly, that the students will interact with peers outside the ICO 'bubble'. The opportunity to connect with peers outside the campus and that the individual has other things in common with will be valuable to our students. The attention to safety and safeguarding, the static resources TalkCampus offers alongside the instantly accessible support 24/7, and TalkCampus’ excellent reputation is what was so appealing in building this partnership.”

Senior Director of Student Development
