Reporting Maintenance Issues

Report maintenance issues immediately. We cannot help you if you don't report an issue. If something is not fixed after 7 days, follow up with Dorm Management so we can call customer service for an update. This is necessary to ensure your problem is fixed in the most timely manner possible.

Procedures for reporting issues
- If during duty hours, please call the ADL office (x-7719) or email us to report a maintenance problem. Let us know the following info:
- Your name, bldg. and room #, and a detailed description of the maintenance problem.
- You should receive a reply from dorm management with a work order #. If not, follow up with us, requesting what your work order number is so you can reference it in future inquiries of job status.
- For non-emergency work orders outside of duty hours, wait until the following duty day. You may also fill out a copy of the "Dorm Trouble Ticket" on the ADL office door, and leave it in the drop box. We will open a work order on the following duty day.
- Emergency work order reporting:
- Outside duty hours, please call the Fire Department at DSN 632-5381 or 0434-30-5381 from a commercial line.
- During duty hours, contact Dorm Management.

Outprocessing from Dorms

Moving Off-Base
  • Criteria for moving off base
  • Members must move out of the dorms under the following conditions:
  • Member is at or within 60 days of E-4 and 36 months Time in Service, and has 6 months or more remaining until their DEROS. Note: This is subject to change depending on occupancy rate
  • Member is within 60 days of marriage. (Guests, including spouses, are not allowed to reside in the dormitories under any circumstances)
  • Member becomes pregnant. Note: Pregnant members at the 20th week of pregnancy, regardless of rank or marital status, may submit a squadron commander  approved request to the UH Management Section Chief to relocate from UH to community housing. An earlier move may be requested if deemed necessary by medical authority. The Commander may direct the move of pregnant members from the 30th week of pregnancy until the date of birth. If a live birth does not occur, or the child does not reside with the member after BAH is authorized, paragraph 4.2 of AFI 32-6005 applies.
  • Members gaining dependents must move off base within 60 days of their dependent(s) or military spouse arrival. If a member moves out due to impending marriage and for whatever reason does not gain a dependent, member may be required to move back to the dormitories at their own expense.
  • For useful information when moving off base, visit http://www.housing.af.mil/aviano/
Temporary Living Allowance
  • Dorm Residents are authorized 1-3 duty days of TLA when PCSing out of the dormitories.
    In the event of a member PCSing on a Tuesday when Monday is a holiday (for example), the member is authorized TLA, starting from the last duty day until the fly-out date (Friday-Monday).
  • TLA will not be authorized for members moving off-base from the dorms. The out-processing date for the dorms should be scheduled for the same day as the move-in date for the member's new house.
Permanent Change of Station
  • All members scheduled to PCS need to schedule their TMO prior to making an appointment to out-process the dormitories. We will schedule the out-process date for the dorm to be after your TMO, and no earlier than 3 duty days prior to your fly-out date.

Helpful tips for dorm life

Mold
The Italian construction uses solid concrete which is porous and absorbs moisture. This construction is very durable and will last forever but has some drawbacks, one of which is the tendency to promote mold growth. This problem is not limited to the dorms. Most Italian homes have this issue which is why you'll frequently see Italians open their windows, air out their bedding, etc. They even use de-humidifiers in their homes, especially the older ones. I have this problem in my apartment which was built in 2006. I used to live in an older home and it was particularly susceptible to mold issues, so I've learned some tips on how to handle it.

You're not going to have an enormous amount of mold growth overnight. It will take time for it to get really bad. So if your room is really bad that means either you were gone for a long period of time, or you just let it get to that point by not taking care of it.

You will find the problem during all seasons, but the summer is particularly bad due to the high humidity and the fact that the central heating system is not on, which acts as a dehumidifier during the winter.
Here are some things you can do to correct/prevent the problem:

1. Air out your room frequently. Open the window on clear days and open your closet and bathroom doors to allow the air to circulate. If you have a fan, use that to help the circulation.

2. The second you see any mold growth, spray it with a household cleaner which contains bleach or make your own bleach/water solution. This should kill the mold within minutes.

3. Invest in some moisture absorbers. These are especially useful in closets and dressers. You can get them locally in the BX or just type in "moisture absorbers" in amazon and you'll get a bunch of hits.

4. In extreme cases, we might need to open a work order. This could happen in the event of a water leak or some other circumstance beyond your control. If this is the case, be sure to contact your dorm manager to resolve the problem.

5. For more information, see the EPA guide on Mold under the Pubs, Standards, and Policies section.

Networking
There are many of you who share the same common interests like hiking, sports and activities, gaming, etc. Get to know each other through those common interests and you'll also gain valuable contacts around the wing that might come in handy if you need something from another office.

Reporting Violations
It is everyone's responsibility to report violations of military standards. If you see something or someone in violation of our Air Force standards, report it to Dorm Management, Security Forces, or your chain of command immediately. Once you are a witness, you are involved and can be held liable if you did not report a violation. It's your career so do what's right, even in the face of adversity.

Security
Keep your room and valuables secure at all times.

Traveling

  • Always have plenty of cash in small denominations on you when you travel. Many places still do not take credit cards.
  • Make sure your phone is charged and has time loaded on it.
  • Have emergency numbers programmed in your phone in case of an emergency.
  • Always let someone know where you're going and follow your flight's policies on local travel.
  • Make sure your car is in good working condition and can make the trip.
  • Know that your AFI license is only valid within Italy. To drive outside of Italy you need an international license or an Italian driver's license.
  • Have a well stocked emergency kit in your vehicle. Supplies like blankets, flashlights, vehicle fluids, water, duct tape, and a general tool kit are great to have at all times.

Dorm Lockouts

  • During duty hours, stop by the ADL office for room entry.
  • During non-duty hours, report to the Fire Department and follow their instructions.
  • Do not attempt to gain access to your room by forcing open the door or window. You will be held responsible for any damage to the facility
  • Lost or damaged keys require a $15 replacement fee.

Trash Disposal

You must dispose of all trash and recyclables in the designated dumpsters. Do not throw personal trash in the public trash cans in the common areas such as Dayrooms or BBQ pavilions. Do not leave trash outside your room.

Bulk items like electronics, appliances (fans, coffee pots, etc), and furniture need to be disposed of at the Base Refuse Center (BRC), near the 31 CES/Readiness building, 1019. Only Dorm Residents are allowed to dispose personal trash at the BRC. Your room key will be provided to the BRC facilitator upon request for proof of dorm residency.

The BRC is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 8 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-3 p.m..

Tires and vehicle batteries can be disposed of at the Auto Hobby Shop.
