AIMS@ UNM is located in the University of New Mexico Science and Technology Park, which houses a multitude of Science and Technology businesses. It is the privilege of AIMS@UNM to be housed on this location, and it is our responsibility to present an image that in no way detracts from the business atmosphere of the Park. The purpose of the Albuquerque Institute for Mathematics and Science @UNM dress code is to create a professional, safe and respectful community where students can place their sole focus on learning. The dress code is in effect from the start of the school day until the end of the school day.

Shoulder seams must be at the shoulders, and shirts cannot hang down below mid thigh level. Jackets will not qualify as a replacement for a collared shirt. Jackets may be worn as long as they are not excessively baggy, shoulder seams are at the shoulders and jackets cannot hang below mid thigh level (tips of fingertips when arms are at the sides). If worn inside, jackets must allow a full view of dress requirements . Text on jackets or buttons that promotes violence, alcohol, gangs, tobacco or drugs is prohibited and clothing that is associated with a gang is not permitted.(determination made by the administration).
