Lackland AFB has billeting units available. If those units are full, the Inns of Lackland have agreements with hotels and motels near the base and downtown to provide temporary housing for those arriving here in official travel status. Although members traveling in official status have first priority, it is still wise to request lodging as early as possible.

If there are no vacancies in billeting at the time of your projected arrival, the clerk will make reservations for you and your family in one of the contracted off-base facilities. To ensure that you are reimbursed for off-base lodging, please check in with the billeting office first to get your non-availability statement.

If you are traveling with pets, make kennel reservations for your pet unless you will be staying at a hotel that accepts pets.

Permanent Change of Station (PCS) military personnel are authorized to stay in TLF up to 30 days in Sept-May and 15 days for June through August. BAQ is adjusted for every day in TLF over 30 days.

Single Members Lodgingu may be housed in the Visiting Airmen Quarters up to 30 days if there is no dormitory space available. You will be allowed to file for reimbursement of temporary lodging expenses.
