Housing on Hill Air Force Base is privatized and is owned and operated by Boyer Hill Military Housing (BHMH). Family housing is divided into four areas. Homes are available to all ranks from any branch of service. Each home has a refrigerator, gas or electric range, dishwasher and disposal.

The wait for family housing varies depending on the housing list for which you are eligible. The range for wait times can run anywhere from 30 days to 6 months.

All active duty military members, accompanied by their dependents(s), who are permanently assigned or attached to the installation are eligible to apply for family housing on Hill AFB. The housing wait list on which you are placed is based on your rank and the number of dependents.

Military members E-6 and below are assigned to Junior NCO housing. Personnel, E-7 and above, are assigned to Senior NCO housing and have a minimum entitlement of three bedrooms. Company Grade Officers are placed on the Company Grade list, Majors and Lt. Colonels on the Field Grade Lists and Colonels and above on the Senior Officers list.

To apply for privatized housing, complete a DD Form 1746, Application for Assignment to Housing and mail or fax to the housing management office with a copy of your Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. A power of attorney is necessary if you are acting on behalf of the military member.

In return, the receiving Housing Management Office will send you a DD Form 1747, Status of Housing Availability, within 2 days of receipt of the advance application.

You may contact BHMH for your place on the waiting list.

Military members who are planning to marry can submit an application for housing, indicating your intention to marry, and the date of the event, up to 30 days prior to the marriage. You may not move into family housing until you provide proof that the marriage occurred.

A pregnant service member may apply for housing 60 days prior to the expected delivery date (provide a doctor's certification of the due date).

You may turn down one offer for housing for any personal reason. If you do not accept the next unit offered, you are removed from the waiting list. You may reapply in 90 days.

Single military members, grades E-1 thru E-4 (less than 3 years of service), are required to live in the dormitories, unless they have an approved hardship or are authorized to live off base when the occupancy rate is at, or above, the managed level. Authorization to live off base is based on grade and date of rank with the most senior being allowed to move out of the dorms first. Phone: Dorm Management Offices - 801- 777-3029; DSN 312-777-3029.
