The BOQ housed unmarried officers. Captains and majors lived on the second floor in their own suites with private baths and sitting rooms. Lieutenants occupied single bedrooms and shared a bathroom on the top floor. The first floor was the original Fort Hancock Officers' Club with a dining room, billiard room, and bar.

Fort Hancock was in operation from 1895 to 1974.
