I am looking for:

Reporting/ In-Procession:

At the Visitor Center request a map and ask for directions to the Fort Wainwright Welcome Center, building 3401, Santiago Avenue where you must sign in with Military Personnel Division. Make sure you have a copy of your orders and leave form. Welcome Center contact number: (907) 353-2273.

Lodging/ Billeting:

E-5 and below unaccompanied Soldiers will reside in Fort Wainwright Garrison Replacement Detachment Barracks, building 3401.

E-6 and above and those accompanied with Family Members should make temporary housing arrangements before they report to Ft Wainwright. Housing and lodging in the Fort Wainwright area is very tight. Ensuring you have a pre-arranged place to stay is a near must for non-barracks Soldiers. The IHG is next to the Welcome Center, and it is the most convenient place to stay during in-processing.

Fort Wainwright has more than 1,500 Privatized Housing Units located on post. Please visit North Haven Communities at http://www.nhcalaska.com/. To check the status of on-post housing availability or more information, contact the North Haven Housing Office at 907-356-1883/1882/1881.

Please make sure you stop by the Housing Office before signing a lease. When signing documents, ensure there is a military clause in your lease agreement or bring it by the legal office in the Welcome Center. A military clause allows you a legal avenue to break your lease if you need to relocate for a permanent change of station or deployment.

 

 

Whether you're flying, driving or coming by the Alaska Marine Highway, it's useful to check the DHS official page on Crossing US Borders. Additionally, there may be restrictions on traveling through Canada; for those, please check here.

Depending on the time of year, conditions in Alaska and Canada may make travel difficult. For Alaska, please check Alaska 511. For Canada, please check Yukon 511 or DriveBC.

Often, it can be cheaper to buy a house in Fairbanks or North Pole if you buy at the start of a 36-month tour than to lease if you find the right deal… as long as you are willing to take the risk and put in the extra work.
