The title compound, [Cu(NCS)2(C11H11N3O)2], contains two independent CuII atoms. Each CuII atom, lying on an inversion center, is coordinated by two N atoms from two NCS− anions and two N atoms from two monodentate 1-phenyl-3-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)propan-1-one ligands in a distorted square-planar geometry. Two S atoms from adjacent mol­ecules occupy the axial positions with long Cu⋯S distances [3.0495 (10) and 3.1045 (9) Å] and complete the overall distorted octahedral coordination sphere. Weak inter­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds are present.
