Grafenwoehr Government Housing
United States Army Garrison Bavaria has government quarters on post and Built-to Lease quarters off post available to all active duty personnel with command sponsorship. The average waiting period is 4 weeks for on-post apartments, and 4-6 weeks for a duplex or townhouse in the 3 or 4 bedroom category.
Prior to your arrival a copy of your orders and DD form 1746 should be emailed or faxed to the Housing Office (at least 30 days) to allow our team to begin projecting Government quarters based on your anticipated arrival date. Please include your rank, bedroom requirements, and any known/documented EFMP requirements that will impact our ability to house your Family. Whether or not you will be bringing any pets is also good information.
Upon arrival you will visit the USAG Bavaria in/out Processing Facility located on Tower Barracks at Building 244, which time you will be directed to the Housing Office to apply for quarters. Your name will be added to the respective waiting list according to your eligibility date which is normally the date a Service member signs out of their last Permanent Duty Station (stateside) as indicated on your DA 31.
Mandatory assignment to Government quarters is in effect in overseas locations. If Government quarters cannot be projected within 30 days of your arrival, a certificate of non-availability (CNA) will be issued and you will be placed on the off-post private rental housing list in Grafenwoehr or Vilseck.
TLA -- Families must be in a concurrent travel status to government or private rental quarters in order to be eligible for TLA. Families in a concurrent travel status to the address of a friend or relative are not entitled to TLA. Single soldiers may be reimbursed for lodging with a statement of non availability from the housing office. You must aggressively search for private rental housing while on TLA status. TLA is paid in 10 days increments up to 30 days when all criteria for payments are met. You will be briefed fully on your TLA entitlements and criteria during your inprocessing.

Rents can range from Euro 800-2,000; the rent may or may not include utilities. Soldiers and DA civilians should avail themselves of the Housing Office and get a full explanation of the details of their own rental agreements. There are some special differences in this area; i.e., electricity, water and sewage, and heating oil are often annual expenses so that future planning is necessary.
