Here at NAVSTA Guantanamo Bay the UH houses approximately 1,600 service members in three buildings:
- Building 1678 provides permanent party billeting for all E1 through E3 unaccompanied personnel
- Building 1670 houses all E4 through E6
- Building 2147 all E7 through O10. Building 2147 also provides accommodations for personnel temporarily assigned duty under instruction to the station or to tenant commands.
All unaccompanied personnel reporting to NAVSTA Guantanamo Bay, tenant commands and attached units must report to the Unaccompanied Housing (UH) Front Desk at Building 1670. Our front desk personnel will handle the check-in process and brief you on the base regulations and area.
Upon assignment to UH, the Building Manager will schedule a time for your UH indoctrination and joint assignment inspection. All of our rooms are assigned in a clean, well-maintained state and are fully furnished. The purpose of the joint inspection is to document the status of the room and furnishings at the time of check-in. During your stay, it is your responsibility to promptly report all maintenance problems and required repairs. When you check out, you will conduct a joint termination inspection with the Building Manager to document the status at check out. Your Building Manager will explain the process during indoctrination.
We have a number of rules and regulations designed to keep the UH community a safe and comfortable place for all residents. You will be provided a copy of NAVSTA Guantanamo Bay’s Instruction [11103.5B], during indoctrination, which explains all of the rules and regulations for the operation of UH. We try to keep the rules as reasonable and unobtrusive as possible and expect everyone to abide by them.
NAVSTA Guantanamo Bay has a full complement of recreational, fitness, dining, religious, educational and other amenities. Most are located within walking distance of UH.
Resident Advisors (RA) are senior 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 various incentives set by their respective Command. The program is strictly voluntary and open to all personnel in pay grades E5 to E9 (E4 with their Commanding Officer’s recommendation). For more information about the RA program and to obtain an application, please contact the UH Administrative Office.
Geographic Bachelors (GB) are personnel ordered to Guantanamo Bay who, by choice or circumstance, have decided that their dependents will continue to live in another geographic area. GBs are receiving BAH at the with dependents rate. They are not normally authorized to live in UH, however, since Guantanamo is a closed base we must house all in accordance with UH regulations.
