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.

HATCH ART GALLERY

Established in 1970, the Hatch Art Gallery is UBC’s only student-run exhibition space. Dedicated to stimulating the exchange of art and ideas between artists, students, and the broader campus community, the Hatch showcases talent from a diverse range of practices. In addition to biweekly exhibitions, the Hatch also maintains and displays the AMS Permanent Collection—an impressive assortment of Canadian art that has been accumulating since the mid-20th century and includes works from the likes of Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, E.J. Hughes and Lawren Harris.

Covid-19 adaptions

Due to COVID-19, our team has had to adapt the way in which we run programming this year. As our physical space is small, there are fewer students on campus, and due to the possible risk of campus closure, we have decided to primarily run programming online and off-site during Term 1 (September-December).

With that being said, we hope this shift will allow us to host a multitude of diverse and new projects, and continue to be a critical of how our physical space and online presence can be used to better support our student artists.

We are so excited to show you what we’ve been planning and hope you are too!

Please follow us on all our platforms to stay up to date with our programming, exhibitions, and projects!
