At Cannon AFB, NM, we strive to create an inclusive environment that cultivates the development and training of Airmen. The Air Force recognizes that managing Unaccompanied Housing (UH) facilities is critical to an Airman's development process. UH is a personal residence, and we strive to provide a modern, functional, well-maintained, and comfortable home and promote pride, professionalism, and personal dignity.

UH is provided for unaccompanied Airmen in the ranks of E-1 to E-3 and E-4 with less than three years of service. Each Airman is provided a private sleeping room, furnishings, bed linens, and supplies required for comfortable living. (Room arrangements may vary depending on location) Unaccompanied Airmen in the rank of E-4 with greater than three years of service and above will move into housing in the local community. Please refer to the Housing in the Local Community section for information and assistance on securing housing.

The permanent party UH campus at Cannon consists of seven dormitories totaling 556 rooms. One, 1+1 dormitory sharing a kitchen, and six 2+2 dormitories. In FY12, a 96-person Dorm-4-Airmen (quad four concepts) will be constructed. These will be four individual rooms sharing the common living room/kitchen area. Amenities include a multi-purpose area (day room), storage area, vending area, mail service, laundry room, shared kitchen area, and individual room refrigerator.

See Referral and Relocation Assistance for restrictions at Cannon AFB.

You may arrange furniture and items as desired, ensuring the room presents a neat appearance, provides for safe entry and exit, and does not create a fire hazard or damage government furniture.

Base Specific Policy

During your orientation, the ADL or UH Management Office representative will inform you of all Air Force and base-specific policies.

UH Management Office Staff

The UH Management Office is staffed with professionals who can assist with your housing needs. Staffs vary but can comprise non-commissioned officers (NCO), Senior NCOs, and some bases have civilian employees. The assigned military are Airman Dormitory Leaders (ADL). These members are highly motivated personnel dedicated to ensuring that residents receive quality service. ADLs will provide you guidance and advice on UH life as well as mentor you on succeeding in the Air Force.

Assignment Procedures

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 team and will assist with your move. The sponsor or gaining unit must then contact the UH Management Office to notify them of your impending arrival date and work to secure you a dormitory room.

Unit Integrity

In most cases, you will be assigned a room in an area of the dormitory set aside for the personnel who work in your unit. This is to promote camaraderie among squadron members. If a room is unavailable near other members of your unit, you may be assigned a temporary room until one with your team becomes available.

Planning Your Move

Before travel, arrange to meet your sponsor or someone from your unit upon arrival at the gaining installation. If you arrive on a business day during normal duty hours, have your sponsor escort you to the UH Management Office. An ADL or a civilian Dorm Manager will take you through the process of checking you into your room and performing a move-in inspection and inventory of the allotted furnishings and supplies.

If you arrive on the weekend or after regular duty hours, have your sponsor arrange to pick up your room key from the UH Management Office or acquire a hospitality room for you until you meet with an ADL or Dorm Manager. If you obtain your room key outside of regular duty hours, it is still mandatory to report to the UH Management Office the next duty day for in-processing.

Resident Responsibilities

You will be expected to keep your room and any shared living space clean and tidy. Cleaning supplies and equipment can be provided to you free of charge. You will also be accountable for your room and the furnishings provided. Residents may be liable for damages beyond normal fair wear and tear. See your ADL or UH Management Office representative if you have questions about your resident responsibilities.

Inspection Program

The Installation Commander establishes a base-wide UH inspection program focused on health and safety. Squadron Commanders and unit First Sergeants implement the inspection program and visit rooms to ensure that all residents from their squadron comply with installation standards.

Bay Orderly Program

UH, residents are expected to assist in the cleaning and upkeep common areas and shared facilities of their "home." You will periodically be detailed to perform essential cleaning and minor maintenance around the UH campus.

Dormitory Councils

The Airmen Dormitory Council is the forum by which residents of an individual dormitory or group of dormitories address concerns about their living environment with a panel of their peers. The council's purpose is to establish standards for all residents, present solutions for problem areas, establish positive recreational activities, and identify facility and furnishing improvements. Participation at your location is a chance to be involved in shaping your living environment and provides an opportunity for personal growth and development in leadership and personal relationships. Ask your ADL or UH Management Office representative how you can get involved.


It is mandatory for unaccompanied Airmen in the ranks of E-1 to E-3 and E-4 with less than three years of service to reside in UH. An E-4 living in UH reaching three years of service may be authorized to move out of UH and into local community housing. Contact the UH Management Office for procedures you must follow to clear your room. In certain circumstances, such as making space available for more junior Airmen, you may be authorized to move out of UH before reaching E-4 with more than three years of service. The most senior Airmen are released first. Your ADL or UH Management Office representative will advise residents when early release is necessary.

Space Available Rooms

When there is an excess of dormitory rooms, personnel in the ranks of E-4 with more than three years of service and above may be eligible to reside in UH on an available space basis. Contact the UH Management Office to inquire about availability.
