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.
Although assignment to family housing is not mandatory (except for personnel assigned to key and essential positions), you are required to in-process at the Housing Office if you are requesting Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA).
All JBER family housing has been privatized and is operated and owned by Aurora Military Housing, LLC. There are over 3,000 homes on JBER. All JBER family housing is convenient to shopping and medical facilities.
All quarters are assigned based upon occupancy by one family member per bedroom up to a maximum of 5-bedroom units. All houses have a garage available.
Wait times for housing continue to be minimal with Aurora Military Housing. We recommend that you contact the Aurora Military Housing office directly at 907-753-1023 or visit their website with questions regarding the availability of housing in your grade category.

Those requiring five bedroom or Officer housing are advised to contact the Aurora Military Housing Office for accurate wait times.

Your Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA) entitlements will be explained to you at this time.
