UDEM was founded by the Daughters of the Immaculate Mary of Guadalupe, the nuns of the Sacred Heart, the Marist Brothers and the La Salle members, supported by an association of Catholic citizens. The idea originated from a recommendation given by the Second Vatican Council to use educational activities in favor of teaching the principles of the catholic doctrine.
The founding religious groups already had a deep history 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.
On July 8, 1969, the university was recognized as such by the state of Nuevo Leon and on September 8 of the same year it began operating as an educational institution housed in 5 different facilities owned by the very same groups and associations that funded it, such as Labastida school.
Currently, UDEM educates over 12 thousand students, including high school students, undergraduates and postgraduates. The school offers 4 high school modes, 35 majors, 15 baccalaureate degrees and 29 medical specialties and doctorates. UDEM offers a number of choices to study abroad; UDEM has established bilateral, reciprocal 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).

By 1972, UDEM had 22 majors and 3 baccalaureate degree programs. That same year, 7 more academic divisions were created, amongst which were the Arts and Media Sciences, Education, Economics, Law, Mathematics, Health Studies and Social Studies. In 1979, a Mexican philanthropist named Roberto Garza Sada formed the Association for Educational Development, which sole purpose was to buy 35 acres of land in which they would build the actual campus for UDEM.
In 1982, activities in the Humberto Lobo UDEM high school begin and on August 21, 1998 the college community center is inaugurated in the presence of the then Mexican president Ernesto Zedillo. On January 2004, the Rector's building was constructed which houses dean's offices, the Center for Information and Student Attention (Centro de Información y Atención a Alumnos; CIAA), amongst other things. On July 2006, the new student dorms were inaugurated. In 2009, after 16 years of being the dean of UDEM, Francisco Ascúnaga Guerra resigned from his position and was succeeded Antonio Dieck Assad, who is the current dean. Currently, a new facility is under construction and is set to be inaugurated in 2012. The building, named Centro Roberto Garza Sada in honor of the benefactor which bought the terrain were the school now stands, was designed by the famed Japanese architect Tadao Ando who originally called it "The Gate of Creation". The building's over 43 thousand ft² and was planned from its conception as a design, arts and architecture building. It will have several areas dedicated to this studies, as well as 22 laboratories and workshops to accommodate students expositions and art exhibits.
Originally created by Ignacio Villareal Junco, UDEM's seal consists of three books meant to symbolize the letters "U" and "M" in Universidad de Monterrey. The university colors are yellow and black and are usually added to the seal image. According to its creator, the color yellow signifies the light of knowledge, sensibility and intuition.
In 2002, two circles which contain the Latin phrase that currently serves as the University's motto were added. This phrase Homo Hominis In Servitio Perficitur when translated means "Man is perfected in the service of man". Finally, laurels were added to the image which symbolize triumph and success.
UDEM has only one university campus located in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. But also has three high school locations (translated as units from the Spanish word for Unidades). Said locations are Unit San Pedro (USP) located in the boundaries of the university campus, Unity Valle Alto (UV) located in the Estanzuela, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and Unit Fundadores (UFU) located in Escobedo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. In addition classes of the Technical Baccalaureate are offer in the CUFM facilities and the Nursing Degrees on Campus CHRISTUS Health Muguerza Conchita Hospital.
Some of the businesses that have a presence on the main UDEM campus are:
- Bachiller, Bookstore and stationery
- Copimex of Monterrey, Copy and Print Center

- Starbucks Coffee
- Subway (restaurant)

Rector's Building and CIAA
On September 2001, after 10 years of planning, construction began on the Rector's building which is over 27 thousand ft². The building also houses the CIAA or Center for Information and Student Attention as translated to English. On 2003 it was inaugurated. Local Architect Bernardo Hinojosa oversaw the project.
The building also houses the vice-rectory for high school education, college education, development and administrative departments. A red and black sculpture called La Serpentina adorns the main plaza of the building, it was created by Fernando González Gortázar, an artist from Guadalajara. The red color symbolizes the warmth of human beings and as the flame within all of us to succeed.
Inaugurated in 1999 by former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo, CCU stands for Centro de la Comunidad Universitaria and translates to Community College Center. The CCU is a recreational area for students which also houses the Culture department (in charge of all artistic events within the University or by the University's alumni), Pastoral Care department, the student council headquarters, a small chapel, the cafeteria, the music rooms, an auditorium, a common room and the film club.
A yellow statue entitled "The Man" adorns the main lobby. It was made by Oaxaca-born artist Rufino Arellanes Tamayo, who has also contributed to UDEM with countless other works and serves as a symbol for the institution. In his words, The Man represents the origin, middle and end of culture.
There is also a half-moon sculpture, adorned with closed fists, called The Tree of The Community created by Jorge Elizondo. It's also found on the CCU's main lobby and serves as a reminder of all the people and groups that believed in the concept of a school such as UDEM. Each hand has a name plate at its base.
When a student graduates, one of the most symbolic processes before fully graduating is to sound the bell. Its name is Vox Veritas which means "The Voice of Truth" and must be tolled three times total when a student has finished the requirements for his/her degree.
Each toll means a commitment the student makes to always uphold the truth, fight for justice and remain honest throughout his or her life. If a student graduates Magna cum laude or Summa cum laude, the amount of tolls raises to four or five. It is one of the school's oldest traditions.
In 1987 the library system of UDEM was consolidated and still operates today from the main/central library located at UDEM's campus and three other department libraries found in UDEM's high schools. UDEM's library counts with up to 44 direct collective bargaining with local and national institutions, a total of 222,524 volumes of books, videos and E-book, a collection of 408,589 well known and globally recognized academic journals (in both press and on-line), a data base of 23,234 archived documents from institutions such as EBSCO, ProQuest, Wilson, Infolatina, Britannica, Ocenet, Gale and Routledge.
Among the library's most important collections, you can find:
- Colección Xavier Moyssén about which deals with Mexican Art History and is restricted to unauthorized personnel.
- INEGI's Library
In Mexico, it is uncommon for college students to leave their homes and start living by themselves. Fraternities and sororities are rarely heard of. However, schools like UDEM receive a vast amount of foreign exchange students and, even when it's uncommon, people will eventually leave their homes and begin living independently.
For these reasons, UDEM started a student housing project called Residencias UDEM meaning UDEM residences. They were inaugurated in 2006 after 13 months of being planned and occupied over 14 acres within the grounds of the UDEM's campus. The project was overseen by authorities from Harvard university, Yale, Loyola[disambiguation needed] and the University of the Americas (UDLA), as well as benefactors like Jane Wright from the Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas firm. The dorms house up to 450 students.
UDEM offers to date:
