ALRS app streamlines UTA lodging reservations

Reserve Citizen Airmen now have a new way to make lodging reservations for unit training assemblies.

Commuting reservists can make UTA reservations from the Automated Lodging Reservation System App. Airmen will also be able to request lodging for other duty statuses on dates other than the UTA.

To use the app, Airmen must provide their cell phone numbers to the Services Office in building 4014, room 175 or via email at, so the information can be entered into the system.

The free ALRS app can be downloaded from Android, Google Play or iPhone app stores. Service members must have a smart phone and be willing to accept text messages fees and data charges.

The app will issue users a mobile identification number to set up a personally identifiable number during their first log in.

From the booking screen, reservists can call, view the map and get directions to the hotel. They can also cancel their reservations from the app. When cancelling a reservation, Airmen need to cancel both nights individually.

Users can view their reservation for two upcoming UTAs.

Members currently registered in ALRS with cell phone numbers, will receive a text message with instructions to enroll in the mobile app. It is highly recommended Airmen download/set-up the app in advance to ease the process.

ALRS reminders:

  • The reservation request cutoff remains the same: 10 days prior at noon.
  • Rescheduled UTAs can be requested in the ALRS app, but Airmen must provide the Services Office with a 40A.
  • Annual tour and other duty statuses that are in conjunction with the UTA may also be requested in the ALRS app but pay documentation must be provided.
  • Cancellations can be made through the ALRS app, but Airmen must still call the assigned hotel to verify. No show letters are sent to unit commanders.

The call-in system is still available; however, the number has changed to (937) 668-9352.

Please contact the Services Office at (937) 656-0708 if you have questions.
