NAVSTA Newport housing is a privatized housing site partnered with Balfour Beatty Communities, which manages and maintains all family housing at NAVSTA Newport. Information about Balfour Beatty can be obtained by contacting them at 401-846-8877 or at their site: www.navstanewporthomes.com.
All active-duty Service Members (with or without family) transferring to the NAVSTA Newport area interested in moving into privatized housing should contact the Housing Service Center (HSC). To be placed on the waiting list for housing, Service Members must forward a completed DD Form 1746 (Application for Military Family Housing), Sex Offender Policy Acknowledgement & Disclosure form, a copy of their permanent change of station (PCS) orders and Dependency Verification (NAVCOMPT 1070/602 or DEERS form, if applicable) via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org; or fax it to: commercial 401-841-7138/DSN 841-7138; or mail it to: Housing Service Center, Naval Station Newport, 690 Peary St., Newport, RI 02841-1513. Names will be placed on the waiting list (if applicable) as of the date of detachment from the Service Member’s present permanent duty station or the date of receipt, whichever is later.
Balfour Beatty Communities offers a furnished Single Sailor Program that offers furnished roommate homes for bachelor and geographical bachelor student and staff personnel at a per-person rental rate.
There are 325 student quarters and 426 staff quarters at NAVSTA Newport. Student quarters are designed for students attending department head courses at the Surface Warfare Officers School Command and the Naval War College.
Balfour Beatty Communities has a two-pet policy, to include dogs, cats, birds or fish tanks. Note: Pit bulls, or any breed or mixed breed that is commonly referred to as pit bulls, are not permitted. Exotic pets are also not permitted.
All quarters are equipped with ranges, refrigerators and washer with dryer hookups and are heated by gas-fired heating systems. Currently, all utility costs, with the exception of telephone and cable television services, are included in the rental fee. For active-duty military with family, the maximum rental rate is equal to the Service Member’s local-with-dependent basic allowance for housing (BAH). Note: Ask about any current rent specials. For Service Members without family, the rental rate is set at a fair market rate that can be obtained by contacting the HSC.
Information on average waiting times, frequently asked questions, photos and floor plans of the housing is available at the Navy HSC site.
Note: Service Members are required to contact the HSC within 10 days of their arrival to confirm their application or their name will be removed from the waiting list.

The NAVSTA Newport HSC is ready to assist Service Members with finding off-base housing in the local community. Service Members are required to report to the HSC, Building 690, before committing to private housing off-base. The HSC staff is available to review lease agreements as well as assist with information on security deposits, check-in or out inspections, military clauses, group sharing and more. Additionally, the HSC staff will help ensure that all personnel receive fair and equal opportunity for housing in the community.
The HSC utilizes a Department of Defense (DoD)-sponsored program for all off-base referrals. This online database contains a large selection of unfurnished and furnished properties ranging in price from approximately $800 to $3,000 per month, plus utilities, depending on size, location and amenities. The properties listed in the database are within a one-hour commute of NAVSTA Newport and are easily accessible. Information on how to access this program can be obtained by contacting the HSC.
Due to Newport’s reputation as a famous tourist area, short-term furnished rentals are expensive and scarce during the summer months.
NAVSTA Newport no longer operates a mobile home park. Additionally, community mobile home lots are extremely difficult to obtain within the commuting area.
Subsidized housing complexes are available within the commuting area. The HSC staff is available to assist you with your search for subsidized housing.
