Guadalupe MRT Station is a station on the Manila Metro Rail Transit System Line 3 (MRT-3). The station is one of the many elevated stations that can be found on the line. It is located in Makati City, Philippines and is named because of its location in Barangay Guadalupe Nuevo in Makati. The barangay (and its counterpart barangay, Guadalupe Viejo) is named after Our Lady of Guadalupe.

The station is the ninth station for trains headed to Taft Avenue and the fifth station for trains headed to North Avenue. It is the last station of the line south of the Pasig River.
