Barracks and Dorms

The Surface Combat Systems Center (SCSC) Wallops Island Housing Service Center (HSC) has one unaccompanied housing (UH) Transient building and six rooms for permanent party personnel and geographic bachelors (GB).  SCSC Wallops Island UH barracks or dorm rooms are clean, well maintained and fully furnished.  Also, UH have a full complement of recreational, fitness, dining, religious, educational and other amenities.  Most are located within walking distance of UH. 

Housing Options:

Unaccompanied personnel reporting to Wallops Island, tenant commands and attached units must report to the HSC UH Transient front desk in building 10.  HSC UH personnel will determine and explain eligibility and housing options.  

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 to occupants by the SCSC Wallops Island HSC building manager during indoctrination.
  • Joint inspection purpose:  Document room status and furnishings at check-in time.
  • Occupied housing:  The cccupant's responsibility is to promptly report all maintenance problems and required repairs.
  • Check-out:  The tenant and building manager conduct 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 military 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 GBs.  For more information about the RA program and to obtain an application, please contact the HSC.


Are personnel ordered to SCSC Wallops Island 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.
