In the title compound, [ReBr(C14H11N3O)(CO)3]·CH2Cl2, the coordination geometry of the ReI atom is a distorted ReC3N2Br octahedron with the carbonyl C atoms in a fac arrangement. Within the 2-(pyridin-2-yl)-5-p-tolyl-1,3,4-oxadiazole ligand, the dihedral angles between the oxadiazole ring and the pyridine (py) and benzene (bz) rings are 1.7 (2) and 7.1 (2)°, respectively, and the dihedral angle between the py and bz rings is 5.5 (2)°. In the crystal, aromatic - stacking between the oxadiazole rings of adjacent molecules [centroid-centroid separation = 3.465 (3) Å] is seen.
