Corvias Military Living

Corvias Military Living was formed to partner with the U.S. military to address the challenges of providing safe, affordable, quality housing for America's service members. In 2004, Picerne Military Housing — now Corvias Military Living — was selected by the U.S. Army to privatize Family housing on Fort Novosel.

Corvias is committed to working with Fort Novosel to provide high quality homes and first-rate neighborhoods. Corvias Military Housing offers housing to both families and unaccompanied service members along with short-term moves. Corvias Military Living has the added benefit of relying on its experience through the privatization of the housing at Fort Meade, Fort Bragg, Fort Polk, Fort Riley, Fort Sill, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Edwards AFB, Eielson AFB, Eglin AFB, Hurlburt Field, McConnell AFB, and Seymour Johnson AFB.
