Hill AFB is about 35 minutes north of Salt Lake City and 10 minutes south of Ogden. Interstate 15 provides easy access to the base. The base is also accessible on the east by following U.S. Highway 89 to State Highway 193.
The base has three gates. Primary entrances are the South Gate on State Highway 193, just east of Clearfield Exit 334 on Interstate 15; the Roy Gate at Exit 338; and the West Gate east of the Clearfield-Sunset Exit 335 on Interstate 15. The South and Roy gates are open 24/7. It is recommended that personnel arriving at Hill AFB for the first time use the South Gate and receive directions to Building 146, the 24-hour base lodging arrival point. All visitors must process through the South Gate Visitor’s Center, Building 542.
It is advisable that incoming personnel obtain a sponsor from their new unit before arrival. A sponsor is assigned to make transition to a new installation smoother. During your Permanent Change of Station (PCS), it is important to maintain contact with your sponsor and provide him or her with your arrival information. Sponsors can help with everything from housing and inprocessing to adjusting to the new surroundings. Prior to your arrival, your sponsor will send you pertinent information about Hill AFB, such as a base map and information about the surrounding area. If you do not hear from your sponsor within four weeks of your reporting date, write to the commander of your gaining unit or contact the Military Personnel Flight Customer Service Element at 801-777-1845/1396.
Arriving military personnel should report to the lodging office, Building 146, and contact sponsors, commanders, first sergeants or the commander’s support staff. Military personnel arriving by commercial transportation should contact their sponsor or the lodging office at 801-777-0801/1844 for assistance.
The commander’s support staff schedules the newcomer’s briefing for incoming military personnel and is held monthly at the Airman and Family Readiness Center, Building 150. Contact the Airman and Family Readiness Center at 801-777-4681 for scheduled dates and times.
Personnel are reminded to be in uniform. A duty uniform must be worn during in-processing, making it a must to hand-carry in your luggage during a PCS.
If you get married before your PCS, inform your commander and follow the procedures exactly as they are given. The military does not pay for travel and housing of your spouse if you do not follow proper procedures.
FIRST TERM AIRMEN CENTER
