Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone can tell me what housing on base is like after WOCS is completed, for Single WOs...

 

Is there some type of pairing system that lets you split BAH and room with another WO while going through Flight school?

You’ll receive BAH and can get a house on or off post.

Thanks. Yeah I checked into the housing and everything. I am mainly wondering how it works for Single Soldiers.

 

From what I can tell, it seems both WO & 2nd Lts. have been rooming up and splitting BAH. I was curious if that was more of a word of mouth type thing or if the military will assist in pairing people up.

 

Also, if you room with another Soldier in On-post housing, you both split the BAH right?

Yes, you can share a house on base and you split the rent and keep the extra BAH, or as stated above you can find your own housing off base and split that rent as well. Best bet is to check with others going through WOCS to see if you can find a roommate. I believe the on base housing may have some resources for roommates as well.

Find a place off post (alone or room with someone). You will get BAH so its really up to you.

The on post housing that all my buddies received is on the lower end. And it eats up all your BAH if you have no roommate.

I have a beautiful home right outside the enterprise gate. It eats up all my BAH, but if I had roommates instead of a wife Id be pocketing a couple hundred bucks a months.

Thanks for this insight.

 

For the members that are, or have been through Rucker recently, do you recommend buying a place or renting?

 

I looked up the on post housing on Rucker and it looks rather shabby, even by Army standards... There are some good options outside of Rucker according to Zillow, But I just don't know what is the best course for a Single Soldier..

Still thinking of buying, but may rent month-to-month while we look for a place. Not sure I want to buy before dealing with WOCS. 

How many of the rentals have fully fenced in yards?

I personally found a place to rent for my family for $835 a month. It is a 2 bedroom house in enterprise. So the pricing on housing off base isnt bad you just have to look. You can get more but I wanted bah to cover water electricity etc.

Quite a bit. That was a huge factor for me.

Look up 178 Dale Avenue. Thats a house I noticed for rent and its a great example of a house on the upper end of BAH but great location and large fenced in yard.

I know a friend of mine who is in real estate down in the Ft. Rucker Alabama. You can give him a call if you need a house, he is a nice guy.

I've got a buddy that is looking for somebody to rent out a room in his house. He's a cool dude and the house is nice, with a pool and hot tub. I think he is renting it for around $500. Let me know if you want me to link you up with him.

I'd take him up on that, but I'm still a hot minute away from PCS.

 

They're messing with me on it because my wife can't move because her MOS doesn't exist on Rucker, so I'm coming in as a "single" E5 with at least two rooms full of stuff... that 100% won't fit into the barracks. I'm going to just eat the cost the first two months since Corvias won't work with me and live off post.
