Unaccompanied Personnel Housing (UPH)

Unaccompanied Personnel Housing (UPH)

At JBLM we strive to create an inclusive environment that cultivates the development and training of Soldiers and Airmen. The Army and the Air Force recognize that the management of Unaccompanied Personnel Housing (UPH) facilities is critical to a service member’s development. UPH is a personal residence, and we strive to provide a modern, functional, well maintained and comfortable home as well as promote pride, professionalism and personal dignity.

UPH is provided for unaccompanied Soldiers E5 and below and for unaccompanied Airmen E4 and below with less than three years of service. For JBLM Barracks information call (253) 966-0505 and for McChord Field dorm information call (253) 982-7474.

There are more than 10,000 Soldier barracks spaces and more than 600 Airmen dormitory spaces on JBLM for unaccompanied Soldiers and Airmen. Managed by the First Sergeants Barracks Program (FSBP), a contract operation with government oversight, barracks and dormitory buildings are grouped into six Area management zones.

Area 1 on Lewis Main includes barracks buildings near Madigan Army Medical Center and the Logistics area. Area 1 includes modern 1 1 and 1 1E configured facilities built after 1990.

Area 2 on Lewis North includes all barracks buildings on Lewis North. Area 2 includes Army Housing Community (ARHOC) 2 2 configured facilities built between 1970 and 1990 and modern 1 1 and 1 1E configured facilities built after 1990.

Area 3 on Lewis Main includes barracks buildings on the northeast side of Gray Army Airfield. Area 3 includes Hammerhead, Rolling Pin and H-Style common- area latrine configured facilities built between 1950 and 1960.

Area 5 on Lewis Main includes barracks buildings in the downtown historic district and on the west side of Gray Army Airfield. Area 5 includes historic 2 0 configured facilities built prior to 1940, Hammerhead, Rolling Pin and H-Style common-area latrine configured facilities built between 1950 and 1960, and Volunteer Army (VOLAR) 2 0 configured facilities built between 1970 and 1980.

Area 6 on McChord Field includes all dormitory buildings on McChord Field. Area 6 includes 2 2 configured facilities built between 1950 and 1990 and 1 1 configured facilities built between 1990 and 2000.

A 2 2 configured facility has two service members per bedroom in a twobedroom suite, built around a single shared bathroom.

A 1 1 configured facility has two service members sharing a suite composed of two private living and/or sleeping rooms, with walk-in closets, connected by a shared bathroom, and service area with sink, counter, refrigerator, and space for a microwave oven.

A 1 1E configured facility has two service members sharing a suite composed of two private living and/or sleeping rooms, with walk-in closets, connected by a shared bathroom, and service area with sink, counter, refrigerator, and either a stove or cook top and a microwave oven. It has larger rooms and closets than the original 1 1 configuration.
