PRIVATE HOUSING OFF BASE
The NS Newport Housing Service Center is ready to assist service members with finding off-base housing in the local community, review lease agreements, as well as assist with information on security deposits, military clauses, etc. The Housing Service Center staff will help ensure that all personnel receive fair and equal opportunity for housing in the community.
Due to Newport’s reputation as a famous tourist area, short term furnished rentals are expensive and scarce during the summer months.
