In the title compound, [Cu(C7H4FO2)2(C12H8N2)(H2O)], the coordination around the CuII atom is square-pyramidal. The equatorial positions are occupied by two N atoms from a 1,10-phenanthroline ligand [Cu—N = 2.008 (3) and 2.019 (3) Å] and two O atoms from 3-fluorobenzoate ligands and a water molecule [Cu—O = 1.950 (2) and 1.978 (2) Å]. One O atom from another 3-fluorobenzoate ligand occupies the apical positon [Cu—O = 2.210 (2) Å]. Hydrogen bonds occur between coordinated water molecules and benzoate ligands, while O—H⋯O, C—H⋯O, C—H⋯F and π–π stacking [centroid–centroid distance = 3.731 (2) Å] interactions consolidate the crystal packing
