Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU) are set to benefit from a new official University Student & Staff Card.
The student card goes beyond a simple ID and can works as a meal card, library card, access card, debit card, all in one.
The card was introduced to students on Tuesday, 10th May 2016 at the undergraduate orientation event through a partnership with Equity Bank.
Mr Wilson Sseruwagi, from Equity Bank Uganda, said the campus card is fitted with two wallets; the Tuition and personal Wallet.
“The tuition wallet is used to make tuition/ fees payments only. You can also supplement payments from the tuition wallet with funds from the personal wallet,” Sseruwagi said.
Money under the tuition wallet can only be accessed in the terminal at the finance/bursar’s office only.
“The Personal Wallet allows students to withdraw Cash worldwide from ATM’s that accept MasterCard and pay for goods and services at Points of Sale terminals in Uganda, Abroad and Online.”
The co-branded MasterCard will serve as the official university identity card and access pass to areas on Campus that have access control systems.
