Hanscom AFB military family housing is privatized. New military families must still contact the Government Military Family Housing Management Office to be sure you are well-informed of your housing options. The housing office is located at 3 Kirtland Street in Bldg 1217 and can be reached by calling 781-377-4590 or DSN 312-478-4590. It is suggested that you submit an advanced housing application from your current installation.

All personnel assigned to Hanscom should check in with the Base Housing Office as soon as they arrive. If personnel want to look for off-base housing, they can visit with the Housing Referral Office staff. If on-base housing is desired, they will be referred to the Hunt-Pinnacle Privatized Housing Management Office. Personnel should plan accordingly, as wait times for housing may vary from depending upon grade level and number of family members. Please check with our Housing Office prior to arrival.

The Housing Management Office manages the enlisted dorms. There is no Dining Facility at Hanscom AFB; so kitchen facilities are available for single airmen. Dorm rooms are single rooms with a shared bath. Due to the higher BAH rates in this area, more single airmen are considering moving off-base. Airmen E-1-E-4 must live in the dorms unless permission is secured from their First Sergeant or Commander. They send a letter to the Base Housing Office, with command approval, and the letter is forwarded to 66 MSG for final decision.

Priority housing requests are handled on a case-by-case basis. Due to the medical facilities located within the greater Boston area, many families are assigned here due to humanitarian reasons. All requests should be submitted in writing to the Government Housing Office and clearly define the specific housing requirements and the reasons why they are needed. It is also recommended that you include any supporting documentation. The 66th Medical Group Commander reviews these requests. Please mail the request to the Housing Office. If approved for priority housing, families will be offered the first available quarters meeting their needs.

Specific housing amenities requests are handled on a case-by-case basis. Submit requests in writing to the Government Housing Office and clearly define all specific housing requirements and the reasons why they are needed. It is also recommended to include any supporting documentation. The Medical Group Commander reviews all requests based upon a medical condition.
