Gyümé Dratsang (Wyl. rgyud smad grva tshang) or Lower Tantric College is one of two the main tantric colleges of the Gelug tradition with Gyütö Dratsang. (Tib: Gyüme)

One of the five major monasteries of the Gelug school in or around Lhasa; it was founded in 1433 by Je Sherab Senge, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. Originally located in lower Central Tibet and then Lhasa, it has now been re-established in Hunsur, south India.

It was founded in Lhasa in 1440 by one of Jé Tsongkhapa's students, Sherab Senge (1383-1445).

The oldest former abbot of Gyümé receives the title of Jangtsé Chöjé and becomes a candidate for the Ganden Tripa position at the head of the Gelugpa School.
