The Nest at UBC

Vancouver Venue

Located in the heart of the beautiful University of British Columbia (UBC) campus, The Nest is one of the world’s most sustainable buildings.

The facility is 5 stories in height and boasts over 250,000 square feet of LEED Platinum Certified meeting and event space. It is home to eight eateries, one of which offers a full venue buyout. With 33 state-of-the-art architecturally designed breakout rooms and a couple dozen additional unique event spaces ranging from 100 – 11,000 square feet, The Nest is a haven for event organizers and an enhanced learning experience for attendees. Our on-site three-story rock climbing wall offers attendees a mid-meeting adrenaline rush as opposed 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 ethical and sustainable food.

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.
