Army E-5 looking to PCS to JBSA next year. Curious as to answers pertaining to the question above. Thank you for any input!

It all depends on barracks availability and local policy. Sometimes E5 and above are directed to find off-post accommodations, sometimes it is E6 and above. Check the “Newcomers” section of the Ft Sam website and call someone to confirm.

Side note: if I were a single Soldier, I’d look for an apartment as close to UTSA or Texas A&M San Antonio as possible. Both are close to post with lots of opportunities to meet other people your age.

Fort Sam is a great place. You’ll like it!

If they stick you in the barracks then no. If they don’t have barracks then you will get BAH at the single rate for that area.
