Coming to ATU (NE) Strensall may be a new recruit's first time away from home. Army barrack accommodation is not like living at home, and recruits must learn new standards and rules of behaviour. But it’s comfortable and friendly.

Recruits share accommodation with the other members of their section, but there is a reasonable amount of privacy for the individual.

Females have separate accommodation

Duvets, covers and pillowcases are provided, and these are regularly laundered.

Recruits are allocated a double wardrobe as well as a footlocker/top box as storage space.

Shared shower, bath and sink facilities are provided.

Ironing boards and washing machines are available either in the accommodation blocks or close by.
