The housing email address for furnishing questions and requests:
On-post housing has installed appliances. All on-post unaccompanied personnel (UPH) units are furnished with bedroom, living room, and dining room furniture, depending on the Service member's rank and building assignment. All UPH residents are issued a refrigerator.
Bona-fide bachelors residing off-post are authorized basic living, dining, and bedroom furnishings for their entire tour.
Appliances and wardrobes are issued to off-post housing residents for the duration of their tour or tour extensions.
Please note: Do not bring any U.S. appliances to Germany. Most off-post German units have 220v, and many appliances are not compatible with the voltage. Transformers to convert the voltage from 220v to 110v can be purchased.
U.S. appliances that cannot be used will be stored at the owner’s expense.
