Welcome Center, Holloman Air Force Base


Military members arriving to Holloman AFB should report to the 24-hour central arrival point at the Holloman Inn, located in Building 583. The telephone number is (575) 572-3311. Ask the security forces at the main gate visitor center for directions.

After checking in during duty hours (Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) new personnel should contact their sponsor and check in with their unit orderly room. The orderly room will answer any questions and will schedule newcomers for in-processing.

To expedite in-processing, newcomers should bring all records their last duty station provided to them. Those who are planning to go on leave or on a temporary duty assignment right away must report prior to departure.


The base is about 10 miles west of Alamogordo, N.M., on Route 70/82; 90 miles north of El Paso (Route 54), Texas; 70 miles east of Las Cruces, N.M. (Route 70/82).

If you are driving, Holloman is located on Highway 70 and is clearly marked. If you are arriving by bus, follow White Sands Boulevard which turns into Highway 70 and follow the signs to Holloman. 

Soaring Heights Communities

Soaring Heights is more than a community that provides sustainable, well-maintained homes and amenities for Air Force families at Holloman AFB. It is an example of how innovation, successful long-term planning, and forward-thinking community partnerships can make a meaningful difference in the lives of Airmen, their families and the communities in which they reside. Its homes and communities feature pedestrian-friendly streets, a spacious community center and other amenities focused on comfort and convenience for Air Force families. 

New homes feature five-star ENERGY STAR appliances, technology spaces and covered porches for integrated indoor/outdoor living. Additionally, there are educational and family-focused resident programs, premier and innovative safety and recycling programs, community events and recreation opportunities that connect with SHC's priorities of environmental, social and economic sustainability. 

Since its beginning in July 2007, Soaring Heights has evolved into a spacious community of 1,061 properties that include: legacy, new and renovated homes. Its efficient, friendly services and community amenities are recognized as examples of excellence that strive to meet and exceed Air Force families' expectations. 

These energy-efficient homes are 20 to 40 percent larger than many of the homes Airmen and their families have been living in for years and boast a number of features designed specifically to allow residents to live the lifestyle they deserve in the place they belong. Soaring Heights' homes and neighborhoods are family-friendly and designed with the active lifestyles of residents in mind. 

Today, Soaring Heights is an example of how partnership and a shared goal of doing what is best for Air Force families bear results. And most importantly it's the place Holloman Air Force families call home. 

If you want a quality home and neighborhood in an Air Force community, call SHC at (575) 479-1175 to speak with a leasing consultant and schedule a tour of the community.
