A learning scenario

We are a university with ideal characteristics for students interested in making the most out of their time. Far from the city, we have formed a community of continuous learning, where we all know and support each other, and contribute to healthy recreation, which in turn stimulates study, adopting habits of system and order.

Community service

As part of your comprehensive training, we facilitate activities in which you will meet vulnerable environments in every way, being the ideal scenario to promote your leadership and create clubs that benefit the community development.



At the University of Montemorelos, we not only worry about the academic well-being of the student but also about his lifestyle.
