When planning for a move with the military, you might consider moving into government housing. Government housing is owned and maintained by the Department of Defense and is typically on the installation. Eligibility and availability for this type of housing may vary by service member, family size and installation. Learn more about the different options, benefits and discounts that may be available to you through government housing.
Fort Wainwright housing is owned and managed by North Haven Communities and is the preferred choice for active-duty military families. NHC at Fort Wainwright currently has more than 1,800 privatized housing units located on post. Their location provides easy and quick access to a number of on-post facilities and resources including: elementary schools, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service shoppette, gyms, child care centers and chapels. Keep in mind that based on the number of families arriving and departing due to permanent change of station or other reasons, the wait for on-post housing can vary widely. For up-to-date information on their wait lists, as well as further information on their leasing procedures, contact the NHC leasing office at 907-356-7000 or 877-837-3098.
Application and NHC Eligibility
Service members may apply for on-post housing by going to the NHC website and choosing Fort Wainwright. Service members also have the option to apply in person at the NHC leasing office located in the welcome center at 3401 Santiago Road. The NHC leasing office is conveniently co-located with the installation’s housing support officer. Please contact a leasing consultant at 907-356-7000 or 877-837-3098 for more information regarding the application and rental process.
Tenants may have a total of two pets (dogs and cats) in any combination. Small animals such as birds, fish and guinea pigs are also allowed as long as they are properly caged and cared for with NHC permissions. Pets must be registered with the garrison in accordance to current policies. If you have pets, please check the NHC website to verify breed and animal restrictions. If you would like to inquire about pet ownership outside of these guidelines (e.g., more than two pets) please contact an NHC representative to submit a formal exception to the policy.
Americans with Disabilities (Handicapped-Accessible) Housing
Homes for families with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements which are enrolled in the Exceptional Family Members Program are available. Inbound families need to coordinate specific ADA and EFMP needs with the EFMP program manager in advance of arrival. Personnel must have family members screened for the program before arriving. Ensure that any EFMP family members are enrolled in the program before your PCS to Alaska and notify your leasing consultant with NHC of your needs.
The Unaccompanied Personnel Housing Branch oversees the Army Barracks Management Program for the installation. Under ABMP, individual units are responsible for managing the barracks that fall within their footprint. All single, unaccompanied service members with a rank structure of E-5 or below will be housed in one of the 29 barracks located at Fort Wainwright. Dual military couples who are not stationed jointly at Fort Wainwright are considered single/unaccompanied soldiers for housing purposes and are required to reside in the barracks.
There are a limited number of bachelor officer and senior enlisted quarters located at Fort Wainwright. These living quarters are available to those service members ranked E-6 and above who have elected to serve unaccompanied or “all others” tours. Please note that the availability of space within these quarters must be checked prior to entering any lease or rental agreement in order to ensure proper Basic Allowance for Housing distribution. Any single/unaccompanied service member requiring housing other than barracks space is required to in-process with the Housing Services Office prior to entering any lease/rental/purchase agreement.
Upon arrival at Fort Wainwright, all service members who are to be housed in the barracks (with the exception of those ranked E-6 and above) will be temporarily lodged in interim barracks located at the welcome center, Building 3401, Santiago Road. These rooms must be cleared appropriately prior to relocation to a permanent barracks facility.
For more information regarding the barracks located at Fort Wainwright, please contact the UH branch of Housing Services at 907-361-4537/4518.
Housing residents are allowed to have only two pets living with them that do not live in cages (i.e. dogs and cats). United States Army Alaska requires all pets which are maintained in government quarters to be registered with the veterinary service within five working days of arrival on the post. A current certificate of rabies immunization for each dog and cat older than three months of age must be presented at the time of registration.
