Military Family Housing

On-base housing

There are 50 family housing units available for military personnel.  We have some of the best housing that you will see in the Navy and we continually strive to ensure you receive the highest quality service. All furniture and appliances are provided in the housing units and can not be removed. Family Housing is unable to store your excess furniture so please limit what you bring.


Applicants for Government quarters will submit an Application and Assignment to Military Family Housing, DD Form 1746, along with a copy of their orders to the housing office. Application forms and orders may be submitted by mail, email, in person by the sponsor, or by a member of the sponsor's immediate family. Application may be submitted at any time following the receipt of homeport or permanent change of station (PCS) orders. The housing organization, upon receipt of a member's application, will provide the member with a Status of Housing Availability, (DD Form 1747), to inform them of the conditions of assignment to, or the availability of, family housing.


Military family housing is available to: Active duty service members with Command-sponsored family members, Married active duty members who are both assigned to Chinhae, DoD civilian employees with Command-sponsored family members and transportation agreements.

This includes single parents with legal custody of Command-sponsored children who live with them for at least 9 consecutive months of the year. In some instances, people eligible for housing may not be assigned housing or housing may be unavailable.


On base housing is generally available to all command sponsored active duty personnel with minimal or no waiting periods. Playgrounds are located within housing areas. Youth Center, picnic areas, gym, bowling center, commissary, exchange, chapel, and library are within walking distance to on base housing.

HEAT(Housing Early Assistance Tool)

Navy Housing has developed HEAT to assist service members (SVM) and their families in applying for housing Navy wide. HEAT allows SVMs and their families to apply for housing at one or more Navy installations online before or after they receive their Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. HEAT creates an easy user experience. Spouses can use the application as well, needing only minimal information about their SVM.


CFAC welcomes families with pets.  Up to 2 household pets (cats, dogs, no exotic or farm pets) per family are allowed.  You are responsible for keeping your pets restrained if they are outside.  Flea and tick elimination are the responsibility of the pet owner, as is any carpet cleaning.  Also, you are responsible for any damage caused to the unit, furniture, carpet or grounds by your pet.

Responsible pet ownership is a key factor in eliminating a free-roaming cat and dog population. Free-roaming cats and dogs pose a potential public health threat to personnel on CFAC. Pet owners must maintain their yards and adjacent areas clean and free of animal droppings. Anyone walking their pets will pick up and properly dispose of any droppings.
