tabHousing Options at Columbus AFB 
Privatized Housing Unaccompanied Housing Housing in the Local Community

At Columbus AFB, military family housing is privatized. Columbus Family Housing, a Hunt Military Community, owns the family housing and is responsible for maintaining, repairing, constructing and managing the community. In addition to your option to purchase and rent housing in the local community, you now may choose to live in privatized housing by signing a tenant lease agreement with Hunt Military Communities.

For comprehensive information about the privatized housing community at Columbus AFB, visit the Columbus Family Housing website. The website provides information you need to know about the homes and amenities available in the privatized housing community.

Applying for Privatized Housing
Contact the HMO at (662) 434-3474 or DSN 742-3474 as soon as you know you are moving to Columbus AFB. The government housing team will provide you the latest information available on privatized housing and details about the application process. The HMO will also update you on any base specific policies regarding residing in privatized housing.

Community Amenities
Privatized housing is comparable to housing in the local community and provides a wide variety of amenities and support services that demonstrate how private industry is working together with the Air Force to build thriving housing communities. Common amenities found on most bases are also found here. For example, the Youth Center, Base Pool, Commissary, Class VI Store, Barber Shop, Child Development Center, Golf Course, and Soccer Fields, Basketball Courts, Tennis Courts, and Softball Fields are just some of the amenities you will find at Columbus AFB.

Community features such as a Community Center, multiple playgrounds in the different housing areas, no security deposits and seasonal and special holiday events for the residents are just some of the amenities and specials you will find at Columbus Family Housing. A full list of the Housing Amenities is available on the website.

As a resident of privatized housing, contact the on-site property manager to obtain more specific information on the services available at your location.

Paying Rent for Privatized Housing
Similar to living in the local community, you will sign a tenant lease agreement, typically for a one-year term. Your lease includes a military clause and a lease termination clause. You pay your monthly rent by authorizing an allotment of your BAH that is paid directly to the Property Manager. If your move occurs prior to the allotment start date, then you will need to pay the pro-rated rent directly to the Property Manager. The Tenant Lease Agreement spells out all relevant rent payment terms and conditions.

Gas and Electric Utilities
At this location, homes in the community are metered and, beginning in August 2012, you will be billed directly for gas and electric. Minol manages and collects your utility bill based on personal consumption. Since the homes are metered, you will retain a portion of the BAH to pay the utilities directly. The utility allowance is determined based on 110 percent of the estimated average utility cost (gas and electric) for each unit type. The more energy you conserve, the more money you keep in your pocket! For more information about your utilities, please contact the Property Management Office.

Personal Property Insurance
Hunt Military Communities LLC includes $100,000 in liability and $20,000 in personal property insurance in their lease agreement as part of your monthly payment. We strongly urge you to obtain additional legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions. You should choose the options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle.
** Before purchasing additional insurance, please consult the Property Management Office for more information about coverage. **
