Unaccompanied Housing Design Guide

The intent of this guide is to provide the basic criteria to plan, program, design, and construct Air Force Pipeline Student Housing and Permanent Party Unaccompanied Housing. Previous guidance focused on E1-E4 requirements only and did not consider E5-E9 and officer Unaccompanied Housing requirements. This most recent inclusion of Non-Commissioned Officers (NCO), Senior Non-Commissioned Officers (SNCO), and officer requirements provides installations and Major Commands the opportunity to ensure consistency and flexibility in design and construction while enhancing quality of life. While this guide focuses on permanent party Unaccompanied Housing requirements, basic requirements for Recruit Housing & Training (RH&T) and Pipeline Student Housing are also included.
