All unaccompanied personnel contemplating living off-base should make the Housing Service Center their first stop. The HSC will assist unaccompanied personnel who are authorized to receive basic allowance for housing (BAH) to find a home in the community. HSC maintains listings of affordable housing and will help with finding a roommate. The center will also help review a lease and in some cases offer favorable rents and security deposit agreements. HSC also provides mediation support when disputes arise with landlords or roommates.
Apartments in the area are generally available, affordable and convenient to the installation. One of the best ways to increase affordability is to share an apartment or house. The HSC staff can provide tips to help make your home sharing experience a pleasant one.
For available listings visit the HSC or go directly to HOMES.mil to find housing choices in your price range and location preferences.
