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 Support Facility Dahlgren, housing approximately 175 personnel in 2 buildings.
Accommodations are one or two persons to a room based on pay grade and square footage. Building 962 serves as the check-in point. In this building, each occupant resides in a private room equipped with a twin size bed, desk and desk chair, dresser, nightstand and walk-in closet. They share a bathroom and kitchen area, equipped with stove, microwave, refrigerator, washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, vacuum cleaner, and cleaning kit. Linens are provided at check-in. UH facilities include lounges equipped with televisions, washers and dryers, and vending machines. There are also recreational, fitness, dining, religious, educational and other amenities, most located within walking distance of UH.
