The University of Monterrey (in Spanish: '''Universidad de Monterrey, UDEM) is a higher-learning Roman Catholic institution located in Monterrey, Mexico.

The UDEM was founded by the religious group of the Daughters of Immaculate Mary of Guadalupe, the nuns of the Sacred Heart, the Maryan brothers and the La Salle members, supported by an association of Catholic citizens.

The founding religious groups already had a deep tradition in Monterrey. The Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus had been working in Monterrey since 1908, and the Sisters of Immaculate Mary of Guadalupe founded Labastida University in 1951, and had been running Labastida College since 1919, an institution devoted to the education of girls and young ladies. On the other hand, the Marist Brothers had been working in Monterrey since 1905, and La Salle Brothers, who had left Mexico during the Revolution war, returned in 1942 to Monterrey to found the Instituto Regiomontano.

UDEM offers a number of choices to study abroad; UDEM has established bilateral, reciprocity and unilateral agreements, as well as arrangements through academic exchange agencies. In 2002, UDEM signed 26 new bilateral agreements with universities in the United States – such as the University of California – Berkeley -, and other universities in Spain, Italy, Belgium, England (such as University College, London), Germany and France (such as the Lycée Bossuet-Notre Dame, in Paris).[citation needed]
