Privatized Housing (On Post)

Fort Wainwright has more than 1,500 Privatized Housing Units located on post. The majority are within walking distance of elementary schools, the AAFES Shoppette, child care center and chapels. Depending on the number of PCS rotations and size of families departing, the wait for  housing can be from two months to a year. Typically, more than one-third of families assigned to Fort Wainwright reside off post in the Fairbanks and North Star Borough area for part of their tour of duty. The DoD policy of raising BAH rates to eliminate most out-of-pocket expenses for rental housing has greatly improved the ability of all ranks to obtain adequate, affordable, off-post housing. However, the vacancy rate is very seasonal and rental units become more expensive and difficult to obtain during the summer months.

Application and Eligibility

Service members may apply for housing by contacting North Haven Communities at 907-356-1881 or in person at the North Haven Office located in Building 3401, Santiago Road, first floor. Adjustments to eligibility dates for time in transit and temporary duty en route are made during the application process. Copies of all orders since departing the last primary duty station are needed for completion of the application.  The wait for on-post housing tends to change seasonally.

Housing Units are either two, three, four or five bedrooms. Most units are two-story four to eight-plexes, while field grade officer housing features duplexes and single family houses.   

Americans with Disability Act (ADA) modified housing (i.e. limited stairs, no stairs, wheelchair accessible)

Housing for families with ADA qualified members is available in limited quantities. It is very important for inbound families to coordinate any specific ADA housing needs with North Haven Communities (NHC) office in advance of their arrival at Fort Wainwright. Soldiers and family members qualifying under ADA will need to be enrolled in the Army Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP). A completed Family Member Deployment Screening Sheet (DA FORM 5888) must accompany the Reassignment Processing (DA Form 4787) to request travel of family members to the command. Immediately upon arrival at Fort Wainwright, the Soldier/family should contact the Housing Services Office (HSO) for assistance in locating rental housing. ADA Housing may not be available on post when you arrive, the HSO can assist you in locating adequate rental housing in the local economy until such time as ADA housing becomes available on post.

Single Service Member Housing

On-post housing is usually available for single personnel classified as bonafide bachelors (eligible for BAQ at the without dependent rate) arriving at Fort Wainwright. If quarters are not immediately available within 10 days of arrival, permission for renting off post will probably be approved. The waiting list time frames are subject to constant change. Be sure that you have the most updated information. It is suggested that sixty (60) days prior to your arrival, you call the housing office or check the web site. Single soldiers (E-6 and below) without family members may report to Housing on Day 1 or 2 of In-processing. Single, E-6 and above must report to Housing with a Quarters Application.



Housing residents are allowed to have only two pets living with them that do not live in cages (i.e. dogs and cats). USARAK 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 over 3 months of age must be presented at the time of registration.
