Are you referring to barracks in basic training? Otherwise it varies.

You won't have internet access or be allowed to have laptops in basic. For the most part you'll be in an open bay barracks while in BCT, at least that's all I ever heard of. Privacy is almost non-existent. Things will loosen up a bit in AIT depending on where it's located. Every command has its own standards.

Most units have two man rooms. Most Soldiers separate the rooms with the wall lockers to provide privacy. Each installation has different accommodations but I know they are trying to make them the same across the board. Here at Hood Soldiers have their own bathrooms in their rooms and a fridge and kitchen area (no actual stoves/burners though).

You will have internet and phone access (at your own cost) but the resources are available to have it.
