Management of UH facilities is critical to an Airman's development process. The Air Force strives to provide modern, functional, well-maintained, and comfortable quarters, as well as promote pride, professionalism, and personal dignity.
At most Air Force installations, UH is provided for unaccompanied Airmen in the ranks of E-1 to E-3, and E-4 with less than 3 years of service, and for designated in-residence pipeline and technical training students. Each Airman is provided a private sleeping room, furnishings, bed linens, and supplies required for comfortable living. At certain overseas locations, UH may be available and/or required for other categories of personnel, based on specific policies, procedures, and mission needs. Each installation may also have additional base-specific policies and procedures for UH management.
