Students do not need to purchase individual devices but are welcome to bring in their own devices which they can connect to the student WiFi system. Our Moodle and Mahara networks operate with all platforms (Windows, Androis, Apple, etc) so all devices should work. Athy College does not accept responsibility for student personal devices but does offer areas of safe storage for devices if requested.
