Some companies that offer student discounts will ask you to login to their website using an 'Athens' login to verify your identity as a student.  However, Athens is not widely used at BGU and most BGU students do not have an Athens account.  If you are trying to get a student discount we recommend you contact the company (using any 'contact us information on their website), explain that your university does not use Athens, and ask if there is an alternative way for you to verify your identity. In some instances, emailing them from your BGU email account will suffice.

Please note that if you are trying to buy a copy of Microsoft Office, or any packages within the Microsoft Office suite, you can download these for free using your BGU Office 365 account.  If you'd like to know more about this contact the IT Helpdesk (01522 583666 or helpdesk@bishopg.ac.uk).
