Welcome to Joint Base San Antonio and all the area has to offer. The spirit of Texas is captured in San Antonio by blending the sounds and flavors from Old Mexico and the Deep South while retaining its sense of history and tradition. The city features The Alamo, located in downtown San Antonio and the River Walk that offers sidewalk cafes, restaurants, nightclubs and hotels. Children can enjoy San Antonio's Children's Museum, Magik Theater and Brackenridge Park. San Antonio also offers two major theme parks, Sea World of Texas and Six Flags Fiesta Texas, as well as a plethora of other entertainment options. San Antonio residents and visitors can enjoy a variety of local treasures and find more information about city services and recreation activities on the City of San Antonio's official website.
The community is made up of many active-duty and retired military families. With 105 sunny days a year, San Antonio is blessed with the natural beauty of the desert to the Southwest, rolling Hill Country to the North and coast line to the South. Residents enjoy a high quality of life in a friendly, caring atmosphere of a small town.
There are several duty locations at Joint Base San Antonio and each assignment has different housing options available both on and off base. Select the link above to view the housing options at your new duty location.
In some cases, where you live and work at Joint Base San Antonio may not be at the same installation. For example, if an unaccompanied Service Member is assigned to live at JBSA-Lackland, but works at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, he/she may voluntarily choose to live at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston if there is space available. If this applies to you, contact your unit commander or the appropriate housing office for more information. More information about living in Texas is available under the resources section of this page to help with the transition to your new home.
