    Fort Wainwright housing?

    Advertisements
    I was curious if anyone knew how long the housing wait list was once you were put on it, I read it could be anywhere from 2 months to a year? We'd need 2 bedrooms us plus child.

    Have you called their housing office yet? They should be able to give you a good estimate of their wait time.

    Also, keep in mind wait times on bases are always changing. At my base, we got on the list and they told us up to 6 months. Fast forward to 4 months later and the wait is now over 1 year.

    I haven't called housing because I thought my husband needed to get there and put in our information (I'm a newbie to all of this)...do I call and ask the wait time or do they need information (husbands name/rank...etc etc) and if it's a year would it be better to live off base since we have a child?

    You can call and ask the wait times, but your husband will have to do the application (most allow you to do them online). You should know his rank before you call because that will determine what neighborhood you qualify for. Also, be sure to ask if you can get on their wait list before he checks in (some bases won't let you get on the list until he checks out of his old unit) <--- that's only if you're PCSing.

    The year wait is an example of what my base's wait time is. It may not be as bad at the base you're going to.
