Explore The Nest to uncover some unexpected gems, like The Pit, a student-focused events space that can be dressed up or down for any event; and the Hatch Art Gallery, a tribute to the artistic talent of UBC students since 1970. We even have a climbing wall.

The Pit Pub

The successor of AMS’ legendary student bar, The Pit Pub in The Nest, expands on what was great about the old location and updates everything else. We host Pit nights every Wednesday, and rent the space to students on every other weeknight, so if you’re looking for a place to host your shindig, get in touch! Our drinks list includes the cheapest craft beer on campus and the giant AV wall spanning the back wall is the best spot on campus to catch the game. Stay updated on all things Pit below.
