With certain military moves, you may find yourself looking for housing that’s a little less permanent before making long-term arrangements. There are several temporary housing options that may be right for you. Explore the information about temporary housing facilities including allowances, lodging rates and eligibility.
Reservations can be made in advance by contacting Eglin Inns at 850-882-8761 or DSN 312-872-8761. You may also pre-register for housing by calling the Housing Office at 850-882-4533. Eglin has limited TLF quarters and you may be sent off base during the busy summer moving season. Personnel are highly encouraged to call in advance and make a reservation.
The Eglin Airman and Family Readiness Center has a well-stocked loan closet for arrivals/departures. Floor mats (futons), dish packs, and microwaves are just a few of the many items that can be borrowed for 30 day intervals. Supplies are limited (especially during the summer PCS season). For questions, call 850-882-9060. The Family Services Loan Closet is located in BLDG 202 (next to the Airman and Family Readiness Center - BLDG 205) and is open Monday-Friday, from 9:00 am-1:00 pm.
Critical Installation Information
Another major concern in NW Florida is HURRICANE SEASON, from June to November. Call ahead if you are arriving at Eglin and a hurricane is predicted to hit this area. Monitor the weather forecast and contact your sponsor as Eglin AFB may be evacuated and the surrounding roads will be congested with people leaving the area. The community surrounding Eglin offers white sand beaches and water sports in the surrounding bays and Gulf of Mexico. Riptides and strong undertow will challenge a strong and masterful swimmer. These conditions are extremely dangerous. Parents should brief all children on the dangers of riptides and rip currents before entering the waters surrounding Eglin. Children must be supervised at all times. It is dangerous to swim or play in water where there is no lifeguard. Make it a practice to use sunscreen (especially children) while on the white sand beaches. The color of the sand intensifies and reflects the heat rays. Gradually expose your skin to sun bathing. Most of the venomous snakes found in North Ameica can be found in NW Florida. Be alert for snakes and alligators when you walk in wooded or marshy areas.
All numbers listed are in the 850 area code:
