The Unaccompanied Housing Office stands ready to assist you in determining your eligibility and options and in locating acceptable housing. Depending on your assignment status (shore duty, sea duty, student, etc.) and pay grade, your options may include Navy Unaccompanied Housing dormitories or housing in the local community.
In general, sea and shore duty personnel in pay grades E1-E3 and E4 (with less than four years’ service) can expect to reside in permanent party Unaccompanied Housing. Based on local conditions 100% percent of E4 and below will reside in the permanent party barracks. More senior personnel are expected to reside in the local community.
Unaccompanied Housing and dormitories are government-owned and managed housing. The only utilities you pay are cable TV, Internet and landline telephone if you want them. In return, your Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) will stop.
The local community offers a full range of housing options for rent or for purchase. Be sure to check in with us at the HSC for all of the latest information, listings and assistance.
