Make a difference to the student mental health crisis connecting the dots with our student wellbeing management software

Manage student wellbeing and welfare across your whole institution.


Unlike the status quo, Student Life is a single source of truth connecting accommodation, academic and central student support teams. It offers a simple and efficient way of recording concerns, issues and incidents and managing cases, securely. Staff from different departments can oversee student wellbeing in one central place.

Record Concerns

Quickly capture concerns anywhere on mobile, tablet or desktop. Simple by design, it's easy to see the big picture.

Report Incidents

Document incidents and record evidence, in real-time. Create action plans for each team or individual and track trends.


Use predictive technologies to identify students at risk and create proactive action plans. With all audit data in one place, you can use history to generate automatic alerts.

Manage Cases

Set objectives and tasks to build a plan for your intended outcomes. Record activities and upload supporting documentation for secure storage.

Control Data Security

Smart roles and permissions ensure everyone can record issues and concerns, but details, plans and activities are secured on a need-to-know basis at a team and individual user level.

Communicate Actions

Mobilise teams across multiple departments with secure communication and sharing of case management plans to target help where it is needed most.

Monitor Progression

Easily track the progress of objectives and tasks, assigned to teams and individual users. Design insight surveys to monitor the impact of your wellbeing strategies.

Track Outcomes

Visualise data trends, case progression and success. With all your data in one place, you can analyse your key performance indicators.
