Unaccompanied Housing at Eglin AFB strives to create an inclusive environment that cultivates the development and training of Airmen. The Air Force recognizes that the management of Unaccompanied Housing (UH) facilities is critical to an Airman's development process. UH is a personal residence and they strive to provide a modern, functional, well maintained and comfortable home, as well as promote pride, professionalism and personal dignity.
UH is provided for unaccompanied Airmen in the ranks of E-1 to E-3 and E-4 with less than 3 years of service. Each Airman is provided a private sleeping room, furnishings, bed linens and supplies required for comfortable living. (Room arrangements may vary depending on location)
Unaccompanied Airmen in the rank of E-4 with greater than 3 years of service and above will move into housing in the local community. Please refer to the Housing in the Local Community section of their website for information and assistance on securing housing.
The permanent party UH campus at Eglin AFB consists of 526 one-plus-one rooms (room-bath-room with kitchen or kitchenette) and 144 Dorms-4-Airmen rooms (four rooms with shared kitchen).
