Questions about Computer Lab Setup for Adobe CC

Current situation and environment is this.  We have an iMac computer lab at the college with 25 seats.  This lab gets constant rotation throughout the day with about 5 classes taught in it.  The iMacs are configured and joined to Active Directory on our domain.  Students login with their student ID/password to the machines so they all have their own profile.  Since the machines are used by multiple different people throughout the day, we use Device Licenses for the room.  This works well and is easily deployed through CCP.  There's no Creative Cloud applications, no one needs to log in with their Adobe accounts, it's all good.

Here lies the problem (from staff/students) and the question.  Staff/Students would like to be able to use Add-ons, the Digital Publishing Suite, Typekit, etc.  This all seems to require Named licensing and logging in with Adobe IDs.  With Device Licensing set up, if people log in to Adobe on the machines it breaks the Device License.

The staff posed the question of requiring students to purchase their own Adobe CC licensing if they sign up for a class.  The students then log in to the classrooms with their own accounts and use CC apps.  My question to you guys is will this work?  It seems that students would only be able to sign in to 2 computers at a time and there would be issues with them moving to different computers.  Also, if a students signs in to a computer with their Adobe ID, how that that affect the other 5 students who also log into that same computer?  Would named licensing even function properly in a computer lab environment?  From the IT side of the house, I understand why Device Licensing exists and why we currently deploy it the way we do...I just need to know if a switch to Student-purchased licensing is even possible in a lab environment so it can be explained to staff/students why they cannot login with their Adobe account/use Add-ons.

Thank you.
