Single Service Member Housing
First Sergeant's Barracks Initiative (FSBI) is an IMCOM initiative that ensure our American Warriors receive the best possible living accommodations we can afford. FSBI will standardize how we manage our single Soldier housing (SSH) throughout the Army. This will have profound impacts on how Soldiers are moved into and out of their living quarters, to what extent the unit is involved with the barracks and how the barracks facilities are maintained.
Single E6 and below are required to reside in the barracks, unless barracks space is not available. A service member married to another service member who is stationed elsewhere and who is entitled BAH at the without dependant rate will also be required to reside in the barracks.
When Soldiers are moved into a room/space they are personally liable and sign a "hand receipt" for the furnishings and equipment. "Swapping or movement" of furniture or equipment causes loss of accountability, penalizing Soldiers who take good care of their furnishings and equipment. Soldiers are responsible for individual room cleaning incident to clearing the room/space (per AR 420-1 paragraph 3-54 d(1)).
Housing of geographical bachelors is not authorized except as approved by the Garrison Commander as an ETP (per AR420-1 paragraph 3-18b(1)(2) Table 3-7 Notes 2&3). Geographical bachelors housed in barracks must vacate quarters when space is required for a bona fide single Soldier. The Unit is responsible for ensuring the geographical bachelor moves.
Bachelor Officer Quarters (BOQs) are available for bona fide bachelors in the Main Post area. "Bona Fide Bachelors" are Soldiers entitled to BAH at the "Without Dependants" rate. "Geographic Bachelors" are Soldiers entitled to BAH at the "With Dependants" rate, but not accompanied by their Family members. Geographic Bachelors are not authorized to reside in the BOQ. All interested bona fide officers must report to the Housing Office for application and assignments.

Accepting on-post housing is not justification to break a lease or rental agreement.
When you are considering potential rental units, do not allow yourself to be rushed; inspect thoroughly and ask plenty of questions.
Determine the total amount you will be required to pay for rent and deposits, to include deposits on utilities and for security and cleaning. Most landlords require a cleaning/damage deposit equal to one month's rent. You will also be required to pay the first month's rent in advance. Will you be required to pay utilities? If so, how much?
If you have or plan to obtain a pet, be sure you will be allowed to keep it at the place you rent. Most facilities in the area do not allow pets. Others will allow you to have a pet, but will require a separate deposit for your pet not to exceed one-half of a month's rent.
Be sure you read all documents that you sign very carefully. Remember, once you have signed the lease, you have entered into a legal contract. The landlord is the only one who can let you out of the lease unless the landlord is negligent in his part of the contract. Verbal agreements will not stand up in court. All agreements must be written and Acknowledged by both parties.
To protect yourself as well as the landlord together you should perform a walk-through of the property upon move in and again when you move out. This needs to be signed by both parties and each should get a copy.
Get a receipt for all money paid with each item listed separately. Make sure you get a copy of the rental agreement and anything else you might have signed.
The staff at Fort Riley's Housing Services Office (HSO) wants to take the fear out of buying a home. That is why the garrison offers free home buyer seminars monthly during PCS season and at least quarterly throughout the rest of the year. These seminars are for our Soldiers, their Families and civilian employees to inform them of the procedures for selecting a qualified real estate agent and applying for a loan. Lending professionals walk potential home buyers through the credit approval process, escrow procedures and closing costs. HSO conducts these seminars free of charge.
Call the Housing Services Office at 800-643-8991 or 785-239-3525 for dates of next seminar. Reserve your spot at the seminar by calling the Housing Service Office. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Anyone wishing to obtain storage space in this lot will have to stop at the Self Help Store to register at Building 289 located on Cameron Avenue. Please note that the lot is routinely full. If this is the case when you register, your name will then be placed on a waiting list. Once your name comes up for an open slot, you will then be contacted for a slot free of charge. Until that time, you will need to seek space in the public sector. Requirement: When clearing post housing you will then need to clear your lot at the same time.
