Unaccompanied Personnel Housing (Dormitories)
Personnel arriving after duty hours should contact lodging for assignment to temporary facilities. Contact the dormitory superintendent your first duty day for room assignment. Residency is limited to E-1 to E-4. The base has five facilities, all constructed after 1987. 

Military Family Housing
Beale's military family housing is nestled among the foothills of the Sierra Nevada approximately 10 miles from the flight line and the noise associated with flying operations. 

The 1,344 units in housing are California ranch style, split-level and duplex. Each unit is equipped with a range, refrigerator, dishwasher and modern central heating and air conditioning. 

In June 1998, the base completed construction on the second phase of the "Mountain View" housing area. There are 12 four-bedroom and 119 two-bedroom junior enlisted homes. These units are thoroughly modern, ranch-style homes with vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans and single-car garages. In addition, 48 new 2 bedroom junior enlisted units in the Brookview area became available in October 2002. 

To be placed on the waiting list for base housing, complete a DD Form 1746, Application for Military Housing, and forward the application along with a copy of your orders through your present housing office to the Beale housing office.
Your name will be placed on the waiting list on the first day of the month, the month prior to arrival as stated on your application. 

When you are placed on the housing list, you will receive notification by mail with an explanation of the estimated waiting time. This estimate is made based on your arrival month and the category of housing you are eligible for. 

Housing Assistance
The housing assistance office can really take the legwork out of looking for an apartment or house and it's a mandatory stop before you commit yourself to private housing off base. They have a listing of most available rentals with price, location, phone numbers, pet restrictions and what each has to offer. This allows you to greatly narrow your choice before leaving the base.
House-Hunting Permissive TDY 

Permissive TDY is authorized for those members who plan on occupying non-government quarters in the vicinity of Beale. A maximum of 10 calendar days (including travel time) can be approved for members (including married military couples) who have received formal assignment notification.
For more information regarding house-hunting trips, stop in at your unit orderly room and review AFI 36-3003. 

Permanent Off-Base Housing
In order to receive maximum assistance, you must report to the housing management office before committing yourself to private housing off base. This is a legal requirement that helps ensure all of our people receive equal and fair opportunity for housing. 

Rent for one and two-bedroom apartments and duplexes in the Marysville-Yuba City area ranges from $600 to $950 per month, unfurnished. House rents start at $1,000. Required deposits vary. Most off-base housing is 10 to 25 miles from the main gate. Rent usually does not include gas and electricity. Monthly utility bills may start at $80 and can exceed $200 a month. The utility company, Pacific Gas and Electric, may charge a deposit of $160 although there are different programs to arrange the initial deposit payment. There is also a fee for phone service and a deposit may also be required depending on your past history with other telephone companies. 

Homes for sale are plentiful. Prices also vary depending on area.
For more information, call the housing office at (530) 634-2793/4 or DSN 368-2793/4.
