UBD Corporation Sdn Bhd (UBD Corp), the corporate arm of Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) will implement digital payments via BIBD NEXGEN Wallet  starting September 25.
With this add-on service, students residing at UBD Residential College or the Core Residential

Apartments can make seamless hostel payments with cashless transactions.

Front Office and Events Manager of UBD Corp Sdn Bhd Hazrin Hassan said, “The implementation of the cashless payment initiative is aimed at providing convenience to students to settle their accommodation fees.”

He said the idea was mooted as a precautionary measure to minimise contact among students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This will provide our students access to UBD Corp financial services without physically coming to the payment counters,” said Hazrin.

The platform was also to answer the call towards a new digital and cashless lifestyle as the younger generation prepares for the Fourth Industrial Revolution mindset.

Users can download the BIBD mobile application and login to BIBD NEXGEN Wallet and select the UBD Corp payment services. Payment counters at UBD Corp will still operate from 8am to 2pm from Monday to Thursday and Saturday.
