All military personnel reporting to Aberdeen Proving Ground are required to process through the Housing Office, Bldg 4305, 2nd floor, room 258, before entering into any agreement to rent or purchase off-installation housing. Current DOD directives make this mandatory.
Harford County has several incorporated municipalities which offer many housing options including single family, town homes, apartments and condos with convenient commutes to Aberdeen Proving Ground.
At APG, the family housing inventory consists of 1,063 sets of family housing quarters.
There are quarters available for all ranks. The waiting period varies based on the rank of the service member and the family bedroom requirements. Application for housing must be made within 30 days of your arrival at APG.
Barrack space is available for permanent party bona fide single soldiers. Geographical bachelors (married service members who have elected not to bring their families) are not housed in permanent party barracks because of limited space. Several buildings have been set aside to house these service members and rooms are assigned on a space available basis. For barracks information, call (410) 306-2002.
