Approximately 325 units are designated for students attending the Naval War College and SWOS Department Head schools.  To ensure that your wait is minimal, students are encouraged to submit an advanced application package and contact the HSC prior to detaching from your current command.

Referral services for housing in the civilian community are available from the NAVSTA Newport HSC.  Service Members are required to contact the HSC prior to securing community housing.  The HSC staff will provide you with a housing welcome package containing information as well as a list of local real estate agencies, a list of local apartment complexes, a map of the local area, a referral guidebook, community school information and more.

The HSC is available to review your lease agreement to ensure that it is in compliance with the local and state Tenant - Landlord laws.  We will also assist with information on security deposits, check-in or out inspections, military clauses, group sharing and more.  The HSC staff will help ensure that all personnel receive fair and equal opportunity for housing in the civilian community.
