In the present work, we discuss the Wheeler–DeWitt quantization scheme for an n-dimensional anisotropic cosmological model with a perfect fluid in presence of a massless scalar field. We identify the time parameter using the generalization of Schutz formalism and find the wavepacket of the universe following standard Wheeler–DeWitt methodology of quantum cosmology. We also calculate the expectation values of scale factors and volume element. We show that quantized model escapes the singularity and supports bouncing universe solutions.
