Applying for Housing

You can apply for military housing at any time; however, your application cannot be fully processed until you have provided all of the required documents.  You can apply for housing in person at the Navy HSC, over the phone, fax, email, or through the Housing Early Application Tool (HEAT).  Because of the amount of paperwork and signatures required to secure military housing, it is likely that several communications with Navy Housing will be required regardless of the method used to apply.
