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.
The North Star Inn provides all temporary lodging on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. Reservations for lodging should be made as far in advance as possible to ensure temporary lodging facilities are available upon arrival. Call the North Star Inn at 907-552-2454 to make lodging reservations as soon as possible. Room fill up quickly, especially during the summer months. Please remember that you must be signed in to your unit and off permissive temporary duty travel while residing in lodging in order to be reimbursed for the cost.
If the accompanied member and their family do not have a confirmed reservation, they may be issued a non-availability slip to go off base and obtain a hotel/motel in Anchorage. The Lodging Office has a referral list of hotels/motels that are within the Temporary Lodging Allowance costs. They can also provide listings of off-base hotels/motels that accept pets.
For more information on JBER TLF, please visit Department of Defense Lodging website and the JBER Life lodging page.
Unaccompanied Personnel: Temporary Lodging Allowance is not authorized for single unaccompanied service members, but you may be housed in temporary hospitality rooms until a permanent dorm room is assigned.
TLA is partial reimbursement to help offset additional expenses incurred while residing in temporary quarters. TLA computations are very complex and involve the number of dependents, whether or not lodging has cooking facilities, amount paid for lodging, Basic Allowance for Housing, Basic Allowance for Subsistence and Cost of Living Allowance. For additional information, it is recommended that you contact the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Accounting and Finance Office as soon as possible after arrival.
Procedures for paying will be explained by the Housing Office when you apply for TLA. You must apply for a TLA entitlement request, as it is not an automatic entitlement.
There are limited pet friendly family rooms available on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, and those are on a first-come, first-served basis. If there are no pet friendly rooms available, you may obtain a list of local kennels by calling the lodging office at 907-552-2454.
Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson has two family camping areas (also called famcamps) on our installation, one of which is open year-round. Famcamps operate on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to active-duty service members who need accommodations due to a permanent change of station move. Visit the famcamp website or call 907-552-2023 for more information.
The North Star Inn does not accept mail for its guests. If you need to have your mail forwarded to Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson until you obtain a permanent address, you can use the General Delivery address.
