Located in the heart of the beautiful University of British Columbia (UBC) campus, the AMS, student society of UBC Vancouver, is thrilled to present one of the world’s most sustainable buildings, The Nest.

The Nest boasts over 250,000 square feet of LEED Platinum Certified meeting and event space. It is home to eight AMS owned and operated food outlets, two of which offer a full venue buyout. With access to over 40 state-of-the-art architecturally designed bookable spaces, ranging from 100 – 11,000 square feet, the Nest is the primary venue for event organizers. Additionally, our on-site three-story rock climbing wall offers attendees a mid-meeting adrenaline alternative to the standard coffee break.

The facility provides a range of conference and catering services at various price points, including the ability to accommodate a 600-person seated gala dinner in our Great Hall Ballroom. Catering menus are 100% Ocean Wise certified, supporting our strong commitment to sustainability.

Our stunning facility and location combined with over 15 years’ experience, full-service event planning and an award-winning culinary team makes The Nest, the ideal space to hold events, no matter how large or small.

The Nest serves as a leading full-service catered location to UBC students and external conferences. We are committed to partnering with you in creating exceptional and sustainably responsible experiences for you and your guests. Social responsibility is part of our mandate. 100% of our proceeds go directly back to support AMS run student services, resources, and leadership opportunities.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you!
