Fort Carson is proud to be the first Army installation to have privatized housing available for all ranks. Units range in size from two to four bedrooms -- some are handicap accessible - and feature stoves, dishwashers, refrigerators and hook-ups for washers and dryers. Residents are responsible for gas/electric in excess of an established baseline per the Department of the Army Resident Responsibility Program. Or they could receive a refund each month for conserving.
Water, wastewater and refuse service is provided, and telephone and cable service is available at the residents' expense. Balfour Beatty Communities maintains waiting lists for different groupings (junior enlisted, senior enlisted, junior officer, etc.) when demand in each grouping exceeds the housing supply. The management company also conducts leasing, assignments and terminations of on-post housing in Building 6800 on Prussman Boulevard.
Soldiers from anywhere in the world can access information by visiting the Balfour Beatty Communities website at http://www.fortcarsonfamilyhousing.com or by calling (719) 579-1606.
