At McConnell Air Force Base, military family housing is privatized. Corvias Military Living 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 Corvias Military Living.

For comprehensive information about the privatized housing community at McConnell, visit the Corvias Military Living website. The website provides information you need to know about the homes, amenities and services available in the privatized housing community.

The HMO will also update you on any base specific policies regarding residing in privatized housing. You may also apply for housing prior to your arrival online at airforce.corviasmilitaryliving.com.

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
Existing homes at McConnell Air Force Base are not metered for usage. The cost of your utilities is included in your BAH payment to Corvias Military Living. In the future, new and renovated homes will be metered and Corvias will establish a portion of the BAH as a utility allowance for your housing type. For more information about your utilities, please contact the Community Management Office.

Personal Property Insurance
If you choose to live on base, your personal property is covered by a $20,000 renter's insurance policy with a $250 deductible. Corvias also provides $100,000 in liability coverage for you and your family. You are encouraged to purchase additional insurance to supplement these coverages based on your needs. For example, if the value of your personal property is greater than $20,000 you may wish to carry additional insurance.

Before purchasing your insurance, please consult the Property Management Office for more information about coverage.
