There are only 490 family housing units available on-post. Military personnel are instructed to contact the Housing Office which is located in Building 1425. The office is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am. to 4:00 p.m. Typically, the wait for on-base housing is between 3 months and over a year. Advance applications can be submitted.

There are two child development centers on Peterson Air Force Base which provide both full day daycare and hourly daycare dependent on specific needs. Hourly care reservations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. The Peterson's Main Child Development Center is located in Building 1350, and the Annex Child Development Center in Building 2004. The cost of school age programs are determined on a sliding scale based on family income. Up to 20 hours of childcare will be provided in licensed Family Child Care homes and paid for by the Air Force Aid Society. The Colorado Springs area offers over 10 school districts. Due to overflow issues in certain areas, families are encouraged to check out off-post housing carefully to make sure the corresponding school district has room for more students. If families are living on-post, children of school age will attend District 11 schools.
