Here are some of the things that make military-friendly apartments like those at Liberty Creek Village the perfect place for your next PCS.

Military-friendly apartments are…


In some places, living on base may make better financial sense than living off post. Oklahoma’s low cost of living, however, makes it among the most affordable places to live in the country. With lower housing and transportation costs than the national average and a diverse job market, Oklahoma offers plenty of opportunities for a high quality of life at a lower price, which means you may get more value for your BAH by living off base in military-friendly housing like Liberty Creek Village. (You can calculate your estimated BAH with this calculator.)

With military-friendly apartments at Liberty Creek Village, utilities and all other bills are often included in the rent price, and you can choose from 12- or 18-month leases. In addition, Liberty Creek Village waives the administrative and application fees for active duty and veteran service members and offers a $300 one-time discount on the first full month of rent.

Your BAH goes further at Liberty Creek Village, where all of our beautifully designed 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments include in-unit washers and dryers, generous storage, routine maintenance, and garage parking. Upscale details are standard, with spacious walk-in closets, modern finishes, and a Samsung stainless appliance package in every kitchen. What’s more, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful resort-style neighborhood without breaking the bank.

In a great location.

Moving with the military gives you plenty of opportunities to explore new locales. Military-friendly apartments are not only close to base, making for short, easy commutes, but they are also close to nearby communities, night life, family-friendly activities, and popular attractions.

Liberty Creek Village is conveniently located along I-240, putting you less than 10 minutes away from Tinker Air Force Base, downtown Oklahoma City, and neighboring communities like Del City, Moore, Edmond, Choctaw, and Midwest City, which began as a support community for the base and is now one of central Oklahoma’s most vibrant places to live. You’ll have plenty of options when it comes to storage facilities, childcare, and pet care, including boarding, grooming, and training services. Hotels and restaurants are plentiful and close to base, taking the stress out of the transition, while an abundance of urgent care centers help make sure you and your family can receive quality care for the inevitable—and often inconvenient—illness.

Liberty Creek Village is well-positioned within the Oklahoma City metro as well as within the state for fun that’s never far away. Take just a short drive in any direction to find a lake, a golf course, a museum, a park, or an attraction, not to mention world-class shopping, family-friendly sporting and entertainment events, and eclectic dining. Slightly longer drives will take you to several of Oklahoma’s world-class state parks and lake resorts as well as top-rated casinos, college towns, and major cities like Wichita, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Branson, and Ft. Smith, Arkansas. Be sure to check out our area guide here.

Oklahoma itself is very military-friendly, offering a wide range of benefits and incentives to service members, veterans, and their families, from military discounts at museums and attractions to income tax exemptions on military and retired pay, free or reduced prices for hunting and fishing privileges, and discounts on vehicle and boat registration.

Other ways Oklahoma seeks to help servicemembers and their family include income tax exemptions for nonresident spouses of nonresident service members in certain circumstances as well as professional licensure benefits for service members and their spouses; opportunities to use military education, training, and experience for professional licensing and certification requirements; and military spouse applicant equivalency. Spouses may also be granted a temporary license or certification while they continue to work towards Oklahoma licensing requirements.

Focused on community.

One of the hardest parts of moving in the military is leaving a community you’re comfortable with and starting over in a new one. Military-friendly apartments should make the transition easier for you by giving you and your family plenty of opportunities to meet new people and engage with the local community.

Liberty Creek Village is just 15 minutes from Midwest City and Del City—collectively referred to as Mid-Del—two warm and welcoming communities that are proud to support the soldiers, families, and personnel at Tinker Air Force Base. Rose State College regularly hosts comedians, musicians and guest speakers, as well as outdoor events and performances, while car enthusiasts Cruise in for Coffee each third Saturday. Or you can just get away from it all at Lake Stanley Draper. In addition to Soldier Creek Industrial Park, with nearly 5 miles of multi-use natural terrain trails, you’ll find a plethora of parks and sports complexes for soccer, softball, baseball, football, and more. There’s even a place for your pets to play at Fred Quinn Happy Tails Dog Park, a two-acre dog park with built-in equipment, water features, and a washing station.

Liberty Creek Village also provides a ready-made community of its own, complete with two resident-only clubhouses boasting a pool table, shuffleboard, arcade games, and a media room; a community patio pub; resort-style pools with cabanas and outdoor living spaces with fire pits; and tons of ways to play with soccer fields, cornhole, sand volleyball, putting greens, bocce ball, and basketball courts. Liberty Creek Village also hosts monthly planned social activities for residents. You can also take in Oklahoma’s beautiful scenery on our miles of paved walking trails, expanses of green lawn and wooded areas, and the residents-only lake, all of which is professionally landscaped and meticulously manicured.


For many service members, the convenience of on-base living is hard to pass up, where everything you need is consolidated into a single area. Military-friendly apartments, however, take convenience to the next level for the perks of proximity to daily amenities without the constraints of strict military regulations.

At Liberty Creek Village, we make everything easy, from your morning PT session and commute to keeping your apartment in tip-top shape. You’ll enjoy attached garages with private entrances, valet trash service, on-site Amazon Hub lockers, and a 24/7 complimentary Starbucks coffee bar, and we always have service crews and a property manager on site for maintenance needs any time day or night. Our state-of-the-art fitness center is open 24-hours and features a strength training room, free fitness classes, a yoga and Pilates studio, and a STEM-themed family playroom. We even take the stress out of taking out the dog, thanks to miles of walking trails and on-site dog parks for small and large dogs.

Available (with lots of options).

Living on base may limit your choices for the type, size, and location of your quarters, or you may even be placed on a long waiting list for housing to open up. With off-post military-friendly apartments, however, you can have access to more options that may better fit your family and your lifestyle throughout your assignment.

Liberty Creek Village offers thoughtfully designed 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartment homes that feature spacious floor plans, modern décor, and top-tier appliances, including a Samsung front-loading washer and dryer combo in every unit. In addition, many of our apartments are pet-friendly and you can make requests for fully furnished units or ADA units. *

As a trusted rental partner of Tinker Air Force Base, Liberty Creek Village coordinates closely with representatives of the Housing Referral Office to connect service members with high-quality move-in ready accommodations for them, their pets, and their families. With a fully online application and approval process, servicemembers can submit their housing requests to Liberty Creek Village as soon as they receive orders, ensuring immediate availability upon arrival and a seamless experience from searching for the right floor plan to signing the lease agreement.

*Availability of ADA units for disabled veterans is limited, but requests can be made for accommodations or modifications with proper paperwork and approval. Furnished apartments are provided at an additional cost.

Security is one of the reasons many families choose to live on base. Military-friendly apartments, however, can feel just as safe. The Liberty Creek Village complex is monitored via video 24/7 and patrolled nightly, while individual units feature attached garages with private entrances and clubhouses require key fob entry.

Close to good schools.

Military life can make it hard on kids starting new schools and for adults to complete or further their education. Military-friendly apartments are often located within top-rated school districts and within proximity to academic institutions who are experienced in working with servicemembers, their families, and their unique situations.

Liberty Creek Village residents are served by the Mid-Del Public School system. Mid-Del Public Schools—along with Oklahoma Virtual Charter Academy—is also a 2022 Purple Star Honoree, a designation awarded to schools that support military-connected children. The district serves more than 14,000 students and boasts a 98.8 percent graduation rate as well as some of the highest-ranked schools in the state. All elementary schools in the district offer a pre-k program
