These are the official results of the Women's 1.500 metres event at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. There were a total of 46 participating athletes, with two semi finals and three qualifying heats.

Reigning world champion Hassiba Boulmerka bided her time behind Lyudmila Rogachova| until the final 200 meters, then all drama was over. When she decided to unleash her kick, Boulmerka pulled away with surprising ease. Rogachova held her position and though the other places behind her tightened, there was little passing to get to the finish.
