Providers living off the installation are also registered with the State of South Carolina.

A list of current providers is available at the FCC office, Child Development Centers, Youth Programs, A&FRC, Fleet and Family Services and your first sergeant’s office.

Parents are highly encouraged to contact providers to discuss vacancies, fees and contract policies.

Subsidies may be available for children two years old and younger to help pay fees until the child can be placed in the CDC. Fees are based on total family income. A current immunization record, including an annual flu shot, is required for enrollment.

Air Base Family Housing

Housing Office

Joint Base Charleston, SC 29404
DSN: 312-673-3858/3859

Joint Base Charleston - Air Base has 561 family housing units managed by the Air Base’s privatized partner, Forest City Military Communities (

There are two areas of housing: one on main base and the other right outside the front gate across the street in Hunley Park. Main base housing is new with the last housing unit being built in 2013. Hunley Park Housing was renovated in 1999, with improvements made to individual units since that time. Average wait times are based on member’s rank and bedroom entitlement, and waiting times for base housing changes on a weekly basis. Call Forest City at 843-552-0600 for current wait times. Base housing is open to all branches of the military, and your Housing Management Office team can assist you and your family in ensuring a smooth move in any way possible. It should be noted that JB Charleston does not have a mobile home park. The Outdoor Rec Center has an R.V. park for temporary use.


An advance application for base housing can be made by submitting DD Form 1746, Application for Assignment to Housing, and a copy of your Permanent Change of Station orders to the housing office at Joint Base Charleston, and a DD Form 4422 Sexual Offender letter. You can obtain a DD Form 1746 and AF Form 4422 from the housing office at your present base or by contacting the JB Charleston housing office at 843-963-3858/3859 or DSN 312-673-3858/3859. Upon receipt and verification of your application, it will be forwarded to Forest City to provide a follow-up on more definite wait times and availability. By submitting an advance application for housing, your name will be placed on the waiting list the day you leave your current duty station. If you do not submit an advance application, your application’s effective date will be when you apply for housing at this installation.

Single Service Member Housing

Dormitory rooms are available for junior enlisted personnel, E-1 to E-4 with fewer than three years’ service. These Airmen are required to live in the dormitories. Contact your sponsor or gaining unit to reserve a room.

Make sure your sponsor knows your arrival plans at least two weeks in advance so a dorm room can be reserved for you before you arrive at Joint Base Charleston. This will alleviate any costs of obtaining lodging your first few nights in Charleston. Make sure that your dorm room key will be picked up by your sponsor. If you arrive in Charleston after normal duty hours and your sponsor does not meet you, sign in at the Inns of Charleston (Lodging) and they will contact your unit and sponsor. Apartments are readily available in the community for single members, senior Airman and above, with at least three years’ time in service.

Joint Base Charleston does not have long-term Bachelor Officer Quarters or Bachelor Enlisted Quarters housing on base for senior noncommissioned officers or officers. For more information, contact the Lodging Office at 843-963-8000.

Exceptional Family Member Housing

The Housing Office will make arrangements for necessary requirements if they are not readily available.

Public-Private Venture Housing (Family Housing)

At Joint Base Charleston – Weapons Station, military family housing is privatized. Balfour Beatty Communities owns the family housing and is responsible for maintaining, repairing, constructing and managing the community. The Housing Welcome Center team manages the applications for housing and the waiting list, and Balfour Beatty Communities makes the assignments to housing. In addition to your option to purchase and rent housing in the local community, you now may choose to live in privatized housing by signing a tenant lease agreement with Balfour Beatty Communities.

The Housing Welcome Center is always ready to help all families assigned to JB Charleston – Weapons Station find suitable and affordable housing. All families have the option of living in the privatized housing managed by Balfour Beatty Communities (, or Balfour Beatty Communities can support you with finding a place to live in town. Balfour Beatty Communities rents to military families, single Sailors, military retirees, DOD civilians and private-sector civilians.

Balfour Beatty Communities has 971 privatized family homes for officers and enlisted. The average wait for PPV housing varies from no wait to two months. JB Charleston is committed to working with its public-private venture partner, Balfour Beatty Communities, and encourage the development of quality neighborhoods, residences and services.

Community Amenities

Privatized housing is comparable to housing in the local community and provides a wide variety of amenities and support services.

Features such as a community center, playgrounds and tot lots, and walking trails are just some of the conveniences you will find at Balfour Beatty Communities. The Weapons Station swimming pool, golf course, tennis courts, outdoor recreation center, commissary and Navy Exchange are all located near the housing community.

Paying Rent for Privatized Housing

Similar to living in the local community, you will sign a tenant lease agreement, typically for a six-month term. Your lease includes a military clause and a lease termination clause. You pay your monthly rent by authorizing an allotment of your BAH that is paid directly to the property manager. If your move occurs prior to the allotment start date, then you will need to pay the prorated rent directly to the property manager. The tenant lease agreement spells out all relevant rent payment terms and conditions.

Applying for Privatized Housing

To apply for housing, members must complete an Application for Assignment to Housing (DD Form 1746) along with Air Force Form 4422, Sex Offender Disclosure and Acknowledgement; and provide a copy of orders, Record of Emergency Data Sheet (Page 2/dependent record), copy of latest Leave and Earnings Statement, and power of attorney, if acting on the military member’s behalf.

Military retirees and DOD civilians will need to provide a copy of their DD Form 214 or SF-50, and their military/government ID card must be cited in order to verify military/government affiliation.

Nongovernment Housing

Prior to seeking off-base housing, military members are encouraged to check in with the Housing Welcome Center, Building 742 on JB Charleston – Weapons Station, for a briefing and counseling. The Housing Welcome Center will provide you with invaluable assistance regarding on- and off-base housing availability. Off-base housing is readily available and in proximity to the base.

At JB Charleston – Weapons Station, we strive to create an inclusive environment that cultivates the development and training of service members. Joint Base Charleston recognizes that the management of Unaccompanied Personnel Housing (UPH) facilities is critical to a service member’s development. UPH is a personal residence and we work to provide a modern, functional, well-maintained and comfortable home, as well as promote pride, professionalism and personal dignity. The Navy may still call them “barracks,” but dormitories and apartments are much more appropriate terms for the award-winning UPH units available on JB Charleston – Weapons Station.

UPH is provided for unaccompanied service members in the ranks of E-1 to E-3. Each service member is provided a private sleeping room, furnishings, bed linens and supplies required for comfortable living. (Room arrangements may vary depending on location.) Unaccompanied members in the rank ofE-4 (with more than three years of service) and above are authorized to reside in the local community. Permanent party personnel at the Weapons Station live in two-bedroom furnished units that include fully equipped kitchens, and washers and dryers. Also provided are a lounge, a basketball court and picnic areas with gazebos. The UPH Office and residents’ lounge are located at 1 Mahan Circle.

Restrictions at JB Charleston – Weapons Station include but are not limited to no pets, weapons, smoking or overnight visitors. Upon check-in, residents receive a detailed briefing on all UPH rules and regulations.

Planning Your Move

Prior to travel, arrange to meet your sponsor or someone from your unit upon your arrival at the gaining installation.

If you arrive on a business day during normal duty hours, have your sponsor escort you to the UPH Office. A dorm manager will take you through the process of checking you into your room, performing a move-in inspection, and checking inventory of the allotted furnishings and supplies.

E-1 to E-3 single personnel arriving on the weekend or after normal duty hours may contact after-hours duty personnel at 843-296-5039 and make arrangements to acquire a temporarily assigned hospitality room. All such personnel are required to report to the UPH office on the next duty day for inprocessing.

Assignment Procedures

Permanent party service members live on base in apartment-style housing units that were completely renovated and modernized in 2004. Enlisted members E-3 and below must live on base. Enlisted members E-4 and above, including officers, must contact the UPH office with regard to space-available housing.

As soon as you are notified of your assignment, contact your gaining unit and request to be assigned a sponsor. Your sponsor will be another military member assigned to your unit and will assist with your move. The sponsor or gaining unit must then contact the UPH office to notify them of your arrival date and work to secure you a dormitory room.

If advance notice is provided and dormitory spaces are available, your keys will be waiting for you.

NNPTC Students

All single students attending the yearlong NNPTC classes live in dormitories on the school complex. While completing the first phase of their training, enlisted students are assigned to a 2+2-style suite (two students sharing a bedroom, with four students sharing a common bathroom). Completed in 1998, the training complex includes six modern dormitories, a gymnasium, liberty center and a five-star military galley. Dormitory assignments are made by the school when students report to the command.
