Gate Information

Barksdale currently operates four gates for admittance onto the base. Three on the main base and one on Barksdale's East Reservation to accommodate east-side residents.

At the end of the Shreveport-Barksdale bridge is the west gate. This is the main gate to the base: Manned by our elite security forces personnel, this gate is the point at which visiting individuals are granted access via a temporary visitor's pass to Barksdale AFB. This gate is manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

At the end of Northgate Rd. you will find the Bossier Gate. This is the north gate. This is the easiest way to access the Barksdale Lodging office, for those who are in need of temporary lodging.

Barksdale's East Gate is located off Industrial Dr. on the northeast side of the base. This gate is intended to service those individuals residing in either of the two housing areas located on the east reservation and for those who live the subdivisions to the north of the base.

Base Education Office

The Education Center offers professional guidance to enhance individual and mission readiness, educate and equip Airmen of available AF education programs and assist in preparing the world’s elite fighting force through education. The Air Force is a full-time job, but this doesn’t mean airmen should give up on their education and dreams. In fact, this is more of a reason to continue your education. While most will carry the load of student loans, airmen have a wide variety of options that can allow them to attend college for next to nothing. Even deployments don’t have to stop you from getting your education. Numerous schools have online classes and many deployment locations are offering education centers to help students. Don’t let your excuses get in the way of your dreams; schedule an appointment with our Education Advisors today.

To schedule an appointment, call our office at 456-2615 or submit your request to educationservices@us.af.mil with your full name, last 4 of SSAN and the reason for your appointment (i.e. changing schools, degrees, CCAF, TA briefing, etc.)
