Proud to be serving NAIT since 1988 1st place

The Nest was opened on NAIT’s main campus in 1988 by three partners: NAIT Students’ Association (NAITSA), NAIT Board of Governors and the Alberta Government. Since then it’s been the best place on campus for students, instructors and staff to meet, hang out, have a burger and beer at lunch, and enjoy some drinks after class.
