Service members can apply for housing prior to arrival by mailing or faxing a DD 1746 (Housing Application) along with detachment or web orders. The DD 1746 can be obtained from any housing office. The service member with detachment orders can check in with the Officer In Charge, Installation Personnel Administration Center (IPAC) located at Bldg. 807. The service member can then provide endorsement and orders to the housing office in order to place their name on the waiting list or to accept available housing. The detachment date from your last permanent duty station is what becomes the control date on the wait list.
