Congratulations on your new assignment to Hampton Roads. As home to the largest U.S. Navy base in the world, there is perhaps nowhere else in the world that knows the Navy better. Pinpointing Hampton Roads on a map is nearly impossible. It is actually made up of a dozen or so cities and counties. Like other metropolitan areas, it may be difficult at first to figure out when you have left one city and entered another. To complicate things further, many call the region "Tidewater." With a landmass of nearly 1500 square miles and a population of more than 1.6 million people, Hampton Roads is the 27th largest metropolitan statistical area in the United States.
The Navy Housing Service Center (HSC) will help you find off-base private sector rental housing in a community suitable and affordable within your basic allowance for housing (BAH). At Norfolk Naval Shipyard, the HSC has a wide community housing network available to find your new home, so we are ready to work with you and your family.
The HSC maintains the private sector rental housing information, and we have direct access to a variety of rental listings. A representative sustains a range of rental listings which includes styles of homes, square footage and prices in the area.
Come to the HSC to view rental listings in the area.
