Scott AFB Where to Live



The Housing Office acts as the focal point for housing relocation and referral assistance. Emphasis is placed on locating adequate, affordable temporary and permanent housing. All Department of Defense installations have deployed the website, which is a nationwide, joint service, DOD-sponsored website that offers a 24/7 single source of available housing to incoming military members and their families. The website is accessible at The Automated Housing Referral Network or is a previously DOD-sponsored website that is also aimed at assisting military members and DOD personnel with their search for housing in the local community. The website connects service members and DOD personnel with local property managers, landlords and apartment complexes within commuting distance of the military installation often facilitating less stressful PCS moves.


Dormitory housing is available on base for most single personnel in grades E-1 through E-4. If you arrive during normal duty hours, report to your dormitory manager. Your sponsor can make arrangements for space with the dormitory manager prior to your arrival. If you arrive after normal duty hours and your sponsor hasn’t arranged for a room, report to the 24-hour arrival point, the Scott Inn, Building 1812. The following duty day, contact the dormitory manager regarding permanent assignment.


Scott on-base housing is privatized, offering 1,595 family homes — 325 homes for officers and 1,270 homes for enlisted — for personnel.

The following information is a general guideline to off-base housing in the Scott area. Most rental agreements are for a one-year period. The first month’s rent and security deposit (approximately one month’s rent) is usually required before moving in.

However, if pets are allowed, renters can expect to pay an additional deposit of $250 to $500 and a monthly pet rent.

Rental furniture is available through local agencies.
