WHAT IS HEAT?
Housing Early Assistance Tool (HEAT) creates an easy on-line experience to connect you, the Service Member, with your future destination and offers an on-line venue to obtain housing assistance prior to a PCS transfer. HQ Air Force Housing has successfully implemented HEAT across the AF Enterprise so members can reach out to installations when preparing for transition. Installations are accessible through the HEAT tool across CONUS and most OCONUS installations. Members should use HEAT when preparing to transfer to their new assignment.

For many families, living in government housing provides easy access to a wealth of community services and amenities such as schools, youth programs, Commissary/Exhange, and food services. This is especially true in overseas locations where you will find yourself dependent on the support facilities and services on the installation much more than those in the U.S. Living within government housing provides a safe and secure place to reside and provides a mentoring and supportive environment for families.
Government housing is provided to military members who meet the appropriate criteria.
- Members with dependents authorized to reside with them
- Military-Married-to-Military couples assigned to same or adjacent base and reside jointly
Contact the Housing Management Office (HMO) if you have any questions about the housing eligibility criteria at this location.

After 30 days, the application date will be the date of the walk-in.

Waiting Lists for Housing

As soon as you are notified of your assignment, contact your gaining unit and request to be assigned a sponsor. Your sponsor will be another military member assigned to your unit and will assist with your move. Your sponsor or gaining unit must then contact the UH Management Office to notify them of your impending arrival date and work to secure you a dormitory room. The UH Management Office will provide a dormitory room for you upon your arrival.
Planning Your Move
Prior to travel, arrange to meet your sponsor or someone from your unit upon arrival.
If you arrive during normal duty hours, have your sponsor escort you to the UH Management Office. The Dorm Manager will take you through the process of checking you into your room and performing a move-in inspection and inventory of the allotted furnishings and supplies.
If you plan to arrive after normal duty hours, have your sponsor make arrangements with the Dorms Manager to get the key of your room in advance. Report to the UH Management Office the next duty day for in-processing.
You will be expected to keep your room and any shared living space clean and tidy. Cleaning supplies and equipment will be provided to you free of charge. You will also be accountable for your room and the furnishings provided. Residents may be held liable for any damages beyond normal fair wear and tear.
See your UH Management Office representative if you have any questions about your resident responsibilities.
The Installation Commander establishes a base-wide UH inspection program focused on health and safety. The First Sergeant implements the inspection program and visits rooms to ensure that all residents comply with installation standards.
Bay Orderly Program
UH residents are expected to assist in the cleaning and upkeep of common areas and shared facilities of their "home." You will periodically be detailed for up to a week to be part of a work crew to perform essential cleaning and minor maintenance.
It is mandatory for unaccompanied Airmen in the ranks of E-1 to E-3 and E-4 with less than 3 years of service to reside in UH. An E-4 residing in UH reaching 3 years of service may be authorized to move out of UH and into local community housing.

The most senior Airmen are released first. Your UH Management Office representative will advise residents when early release is necessary.

Community Housing Units

Due to the size of Spanish bedrooms, it is recommended not to bring American size furniture such as king size beds. Also if you have a lot of furniture, like dining room and living room sets, remember the houses in Spain usually have only one living/dining room area. The average size of apartments is approximately 80-120m² (800-1200 sq ft) and houses 120-140m² (1200-1400 sq ft). We also remind you that this base does not have bonded temporary storage.
Community Housing consists mostly of furnished/unfurnished apartments, town-houses, and some individual homes. Most of these units are considerably smaller than U.S. houses. Although Spanish quarters do not resemble American homes, they can be made into comfortable living quarters. Electrical outlets are standard Spanish voltage 220V/50HZ. Individual homes can be found with swimming pools and usually have yards.
All Spanish houses have combination Air Conditioning/Heating units, either individual or centralized. Appliances such as electric stove, oven and range-hood are standard. Some houses are equipped with refrigerator, microwave, washer and dryer and we will supply any items that are not present.
The approximate monthly cost of rental homes/apartments in the economy area is between 500 Euros to 900 Euros. The average monthly cost for utilities (water, gas and electricity) runs between 250 Euros to 500 Euros.
Commercial transportation off base is very good, and there are good connections to the main city, Sevilla, by train and bus. However it is recommended that you ship your vehicle well in advance of your arrival to Morón.
For information about the housing allowances that financially support your move, see Referral and Relocation Assistance.
Personal Property Insurance
You need to obtain legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions and should choose the options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle.
The use of local realtor services is typically unnecessary and is not recommended unless a home for rent is only listed with a specific realtor. In OCONUS, if you choose to use realtor services, discuss fees up front, as some realtors charge a finder's fee and government reimbursement is rarely authorized. To request government reimbursement for realtor services in OCONUS, you must submit a request for authorization through the HMO before signing a lease or contract. In CONUS, fees for realtor services are not reimbursable.
