Most personnel, E1-E3 and E4 < 4, are required to live in unaccompanied housing (UH); E4s may be required to live on-base, space permitting. More senior personnel may be eligible to live in UH. Additional on-base UH eligibility information can be found here.
There are many advantages to living on-base for single Sailors:
- Close to work
- Utility bills included
- Free laundry facilities
- Vending and recreational area
UH is conveniently located on Naval Air Station (NAS) Patuxent River, housing approximately 240 personnel in 1 building.
