New housing website prepares airmen for moving

by 1st Lt. Nicole White
Scott AFB, Ill.

With the summer moving season just around the corner thousands of airmen and their families can now use a new housing website to help prepare for their move.

The website,, provides dormitory information for unaccompanied airmen while detailing housing options and support services available at Air Force installations.

For example, the website gives insights into local communities, school districts, weather and other resources designed to help airmen and their families become familiar with their new homes.

“[The website] is a single source for airmen and their families for any and everything housing,” said Judith Teague, Air Mobility Command housing asset manager. “The best part about the site is that it is on a public website where anyone can access the information anytime.”

The website features helpful housing links, a list of frequently asked questions, links to other resources such as and Automated Housing Referral Network websites and an interactive map of bases. The site also connects users with the Defense Travel Management Office site which helps families track their household goods.

“The difference of this site from others is that now everything is streamlined throughout the Air Force including joint installations,” said Teague. “Prior to this each base was different in how and where you found information on housing on or around the installation.

“This will be a great resource,” added Teague. “The site is designed to provide help from one centralized location. In the event that a person has more questions, they are given the contact information to their installation housing office for further assistance.”
