Student life made simple

Lifefyle is perfect for university students to easily manage and organise their busy lifestyle.

Ready-to-action checklists

These ready-to-action checklists have been designed to enable students to make sure all the important items are actioned before, during, and after they arrive at university. This feature is even more useful for international students who are arriving in the UK for the first time. By preparing in advance, it makes the first few weeks of university much easier and more enjoyable.

Important documents all in one place

Scanning in physical documents into Lifefyle takes seconds, and through its powerful AI engine, it scans for due dates and other important information to make creating tasks quick, and searching for documents easy. Plus, it allows you to access them anywhere you are, anytime you want, securely, with just a few taps.

What are spaces?

Think of spaces as 'expert folders'! We recommend you create a space for each of the key life admin generating things in your life. Depending on the type of space, Lifefyle will display the documents related to the item in question, and, will start to prompt you for things that need to be done (e.g. if you have a car it will find out from the DVLA when you need to get your MOT Test done, and remind you at the right time, suggesting a good test centre while its at it) and things you don't have that most people do (for example, if you tell us about a property but don't have any contents insurance uploaded, Lifefyle will ping you to check if you have the right cover in place).

What are projects?

Projects are a way for you to group your documents and tasks in a way that makes sense to your life. You can also tag the tasks you want to remember to do with the same project so you can check on how the planning is going at a glance without trawling through your reminders about bin day, piano lessons and your mum's birthday present.

What are checklists?

The checklists in Lifefyle Student Premium have been designed, with the help of some current students, to help you get prepared for student life! Simply tap on the checklist on the dashboard to open it, and tick them off as you do each item. Remember, these are recommended activities and not mandatory so don't stress out if you haven't done something!

How can I use the checklists?

The checklists are prefilled with tasks which Lifefyle and Unite Students have compiled to give you useful step-by-step guidance on before, during, and after you arrive at university. Simply tap on the checklist on the dashboard to open it, and tick each item off as you do them. Some of the items are just suggestions, others include links to useful places to help you actually do that item. Remember, these are recommended activities and not mandatory so don't stress out if you haven't done something!

What is the difference between an event and a task?

An event is something that happens on a specific day and time, and has a duration. A task is something that needs to be done, often by a specific date.

What is the difference between a space and a project?

Spaces are more interactive than projects. Lifefyle knows exactly what each space is related to so it can make suggestions where things are missing, provide you with trusted relevant suppliers of things like insurance, and will writing services to make your decision making easier, and pull information from public data to help you keep whatever it is under control. Projects are more fluid, and for you use as your life needs - Lifefyle will remind you about the tasks you put in a project, and pull out the dates in the documents saved there, but it doesn't (yet!) have the power to suggest things you might want to do to make that project easier / better.
