Military Family Housing and Unaccompanied Personnel Housing are built by the Government of Japan (GOJ) under the SOFA agreement and managed by US Army Garrison-Japan. Therefore, all military personnel will be mandatorily assigned to either family housing (FH) or unaccompanied housing (UH).

The Housing Office offers a full array of services to assist with locating and securing adequate off-base housing. Please do not secure off base housing prior to arrival.

You may be authorized 50% (accompanied personnel) and 25% (unaccompanied personnel) for household goods shipment based on your rank or grade.
