Lodging Facilities

Temporary Lodging Facilities

Temporary Lodging Facilities for incoming and outgoing military personnel and their families. Personnel who are in permanent change of station status, or house hunters on permissive temporary duty assignment, may make reservation requests with the lodging office as soon as an arrival date is known by calling 618-256-2045. Reservation requests are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis without regard to rank. Personnel who will PCS here or their sponsors may make the request for reservations. Military members must attempt to check into military lodging first. If rooms are unavailable, lodging will then issue a non-availability letter and reserve lodging off-base. 

A copy of PCS orders must be provided to the lodging office before or at the time of registration. House hunters must provide a copy of their permissive TDY orders or leave authorization as well as a copy of the PCS, retirement or separation orders at the time of registration.

The number of days personnel will be allowed to stay in a TLF is 30 days for incoming PCS personnel, seven days for outgoing PCS personnel and 10 days for house-hunting personnel, if space is available.

Transient Quarters:  Reservations for duty transient quarters are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and can be made as soon as the requirement is known.
