Housing Assignment:

Once UH assignment is completed the building manger will schedule a time for UH indoctrination, assign you to a resident adviser (RA) and conduct a joint assignment. To keep the UH community safe and comfortable, rules and regulations are put in place for all residents.  When checking-in, you will be given a "Welcome Aboard" book that will have all the information needed, such as rules and regulations, the process you will need to follow to complete your check out, frequently called telephone numbers, meal hours, City Limit hours of operations, Chapel Service times, ect.  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 occupants by the NWS Yorktown 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.
