Gyümé Dratsang (Tib. རྒྱུད་སྨད་གྲྭ་ཚང་, Wyl. rgyud smad grwa tshang) or Lower Tantric College is one of two the main tantric colleges of the Gelug tradition with Gyütö Dratsang. 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.
