Housing Options:

Unaccompanied personnel E4 and below reporting to NAVSTA Norfolk, tenant commands and attached units must report to the UH Housing Service Center (HSC) front desk in building O22- Groshong Hall.  The HSC personnel will determine and explain eligibility and housing options.  Most personnel, E1-E3 and E4<4, will be required to live in UH.  More senior personnel may, under certain circumstances, be eligible to live in UH.  Questions?  Visit the HSC contact page.

Housing Assignment:

Once UH assignment is completed, the building manger will schedule a time for UH indoctrination and joint assignment.  To keep the UH community safe and comfortable, rules and regulations are put in place for all residents.  The command feels the rules are reasonable, unobtrusive and expects everyone to abide them.

  • UH indoctrination:  A copy of the rules and regulations will be provided in the welcome aboard package to the occupant by the NAVSTA Norfolk HSC building manager during indoctrination.
  • Joint inspection purpose:  Document room status and furnishings at check-in time.
  • Owner-Occupied Housing:  Occupants' responsibility to promptly report all maintenance problems and required repairs.
  • Check-out:  Tenant and building manager conducts a joint termination inspection to document room status at check-out.  The building manager will explain the process during indoctrination.

Resident Advisors

Resident advisors (RA) are senior enlisted personnel who provide an after-hours leadership presence in UH.  RAs sign a memorandum of understanding, agreeing to certain duties and responsibilities in exchange for a room in UH.  The program is strictly voluntary and open to personnel in pay grades E5 to E9 (E4 with their commanding officer’s recommendation) including geographic bachelors (GB).  For more information about the RA program and to obtain an application, please contact the UH administrative office using the housing contact form.

Geographic Bachelors

GBs are personnel ordered to NAVSTA Norfolk who, by choice or circumstance, have decided that their dependents will continue to live in another geographic area.  GBs are receiving basic allowance for housing at the with dependents rate.  They are not normally authorized to live in UH; however, we do have a limited number of spaces available for GBs.  GBs must submit an application that will be reviewed by the Assignment Review Board.  If approved, the GB will be placed on the waiting list and offered UH when it becomes available.  GBs may also apply to be RAs.  For more information about the GB program and to obtain an application, please contact the UH administrative office using the housing contact form.
