Why Come by the Housing Office?

Residing in on-post housing is voluntary, not mandatory, except for personnel assigned to key and essential positions, as designated by the Installation Commander. All Soldiers with a family housing requirement are entitled to apply for on-post housing. Eligible Soldiers wishing to apply for housing should come to the Housing Office located on the 2nd Floor of the Copeland Soldier Service Center. Waiting list status on this web page is updated weekly.

Arriving personnel authorized to draw BAH are required to report to the Housing Office. The Housing Office provides assistance in obtaining suitable off-post (private rental) housing by maintaining a current listing of available rentals, by providing guidance for selecting off-post housing and entering into rental contracts. Most leases are for 180 to 365 days. Some 30 to 90 day leases maybe obtained.

Applying for housing…

Soldiers desiring to apply for on-post housing must do so within 30 days from the date they sign in to Fort Hood to receive an eligibility date back to the date of departure from last permanent duty station (provided they had dependents at the time.) If application is made after the initial 30 days, the eligibility date will be the date of the application.

Fort Hood no longer has permanent party bachelor quarters for officers and Senior NCOs. To apply for on-post housing, Soldiers are required to provide their orders assigning them to Fort Hood, DA FORM 31 (Request and Authority for Leave) form, and proof of dependency paperwork such as birth certificates, marriage licenses, divorce decrees, and custody papers, etc.

Guest housing available…

Guest House facilities are available on-post for all grades of military. Personnel of all ranks arriving and departing the installation on PCS have first priority for these facilities. Occupancy is normally limited to a maximum of 30 days for PCS personnel in order to accommodate as many sponsors and families as possible.

Single Soldier Quarters

Fort Hood is committed to providing single Soldiers with a clean, healthy and safe living area that provides privacy and comfort. Barracks are centrally managed on Fort Hood. Many of the barracks have recently undergone remodeling to enlarge living space for each Soldier. Many new barracks complexes have been recently built.

Fort Hood’s goal is to provide rooms that house two Soldiers for specialists and below. Noncommissioned officers are provided their own rooms. When two or more Soldiers are assigned to one room, smoking and nonsmoking preferences are used to determine assignment of rooms. Sorry, no pets are allowed in barracks.

Housing at Fort Hood was one of the first in the Army to undergo privatization. Fort Hood Family Housing, a partnership between the Army and Actus Lend Lease LLC, partnered to build and remodel post housing. Fort Hood housing is some of the best in the Department of Defense and has been completely revamped at Fort Hood over the last five years. In addition to housing improvements, playgrounds, community centers and other common-use areas have been renovated.

Once assigned a home, Soldiers and their families will find that their needs will be met at convenient locations in their neighborhood. On–site property management offices are open in each community. Teams stand ready to provide high quality solutions for military families. Community management offices are open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
