We can assist you in locating adequate and suitable off-base housing. Our office is joint located with the Balfour Beatty Communities office. However, if you would like to get started on your search before you arrive here, there is a DoD sponsored web site designed to improve and speed up the process of military service members and their families securing available off-base community housing rentals.

After completing the HOMES.mil registration process, military service members will be able to:
  • Search for available rental listings in and around military installations.
  • Review information of all available properties listed within the HOMES.mil database.
  • Contact available property owners/realtors.
  • Obtain driving directions to available rental properties.

All incoming personnel are required by Air Force Instruction 32-6001 to report to the housing office before making any rental, lease, or purchase arrangements for off-base housing.

Dormitories

We strive to create an inclusive environment that cultivates the development and training of Airmen. The Air Force recognizes that the management of Unaccompanied Housing facilities is critical to an Airman's development process. The facility is a personal residence and we strive to provide a modern, functional, well-maintained and comfortable home, as well as promote pride, professionalism and personal dignity.  Housing is provided for unaccompanied Airmen in the ranks of E-1 to E-3 and E-4 with less than three years of service. Each Airman is provided a private sleeping room, furnishings, bed linens and supplies required for comfortable living.

The dormitories consist of 680 bed spaces in six dormitories. Two dorms are "1+1 Corridor" style, which include 2 rooms that share a common kitchen and bathroom, and four dorms are "2+2 Corridor" style, which include 2 rooms that share a common bathroom. Amenities include very nicely appointed game rooms and TV rooms. For more information contact the Dorm Management Office at (208) 828-2244 or email them at 366cesdormmanagement@mountainhome.af.mil.
