The 2015–16 FIU Panthers women's basketball team represents Florida International University during the 2015–16 NCAA Division I women's basketball season. The Panthers, led by first year head coach Marlin Chinn, play their home games at FIU Arena, and were members of Conference USA. They finished the season 5–26, 5–16 in C-USA play to finish in last place. They advanced to the second round of the C-USA Women's Tournament to Marshall.

Controversy

On March 11, 2016, FIU fired Chinn for an NCAA improper benefits rules violation, specifically a $600 loan to team captain Destini Feagin to resolve a school debt. The university suspended Chinn two weeks earlier, after Feagin accused Chinn of sexual harassment that persisted throughout the season. FIU subsequently promoted assistant coach Tiara Malcom to head coach on April 8.
