In the title binuclear centrosymmetric complex, [Cu2I2(C8H6N4)(C18H15P)2]·2C3H7NO, the bis-bidentate 2,2′-bipyrimidine ligand bridges two copper(I) ions, each additionally bound to an iodide anion and a triphenyl­phosphane ligand in a distorted tetra­hedral N2IP geometry. The complex mol­ecules pack in columns parallel to [100] generating cavities occupied by dimethyl­formamide solvent mol­ecules. Weak C—H⋯I hydrogen-bonding inter­actions help to stabilize the crystal packing.
