Family Housing

Accompanied personnel have the option to reside in Public-Private Venture (PPV) family housing or in the local community.  Check-in at the local Navy Housing Service Center (HSC) upon arrival to the installation.  The HSC staff will assist with all of your home-finding needs.

Privatized Housing

The local HSC processes applications and refers personnel to the PPV property management company.  The property management company assigns personnel to PPV housing and should be contacted for maintenance and resident matters.  However, the HSC is your advocate, and you should contact them if you are not satisfied.  For more information about PPV housing, including eligibility requirements, visit the CNIC Headquarters PPV page. 

Renters’ insurance is strongly encouraged to protect your belongings and financial responsibility should accidents happen in your home.  
 
The Housing Early Assistance Tool (HEAT) enables Service Members and their families to apply for PPV family housing prior to departure from their current command, before or after receiving permanent change of station orders.  Visit the Navy Housing Headquarters’ HEAT page to find out more. 
 
Additionally, you can obtain application forms on the above resources tab, at your nearest HSC, or you can contact the HSC to have one mailed or emailed to you.
 
NAVSTA Newport has partnered with Balfour Beatty Communities to offer military families outstanding housing choices.  Contact the HSC to get the most current projection of housing availability and wait list information.
 
For additional contact information, floor plans, pet policies, full resident guidelines and other neighborhood specific information regarding PPV housing, visit the Balfour Beatty Communities website.

Unaccompanied Housing

Depending on assignment status (shore duty, sea duty, student, etc.) and pay grade, unaccompanied housing (UH) options include barracks or dorms, and housing in the local community.  

BARRACKS AND DORMS

Most personnel, E1-E3 and E4 < 4, are required to live in 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 on Navy Housing headquarters website.

There are many advantages to living on-base for single Sailors:

  • Secure

  • Safe

  • Close to work

  • Utility bills included

  • Free laundry facilities

  • Vending and recreational area

UH is conveniently located on NAVSTA Newport, housing approximately 1,080 personnel in 7 buildings.
 
Accommodations are one or two persons to a room based on pay grade and square footage.  Building 1312 serves as the check-in point.  Linens are provided at check-in.  UH facilities include lounges equipped with televisions, washers and dryers, and vending machines in all buildings. There are also recreational, fitness, dining, religious, educational and other amenities, most located within walking distance of UH.  Additional information on base amenities is available in the Welcome Aboard package.
 
Resident advisors (RA) and geographic bachelors (GB) may also reside on-base.  RAs are senior personnel who provide an after-hours leadership presence to UH residents.  RAs sign a memorandum of understanding, agreeing to certain duties and responsibilities in exchange for a room in UH.  The program is strictly voluntary and open to personnel in pay grades E6 to E9 (exceptional E4 and E5 with region commander’s approval), including GBs.  For more information about the RA program and to obtain an application, please contact the UH Administrative Office by click the above contact housing tab.
 
GBs are personnel ordered to the installation who, by choice or circumstance, have decided that their dependents will continue to live in another geographic area.  GBs are receiving basic allowance for housing at the with dependents rate.  They are not normally authorized to live in UH.  GBs must submit an application that will be reviewed by the Assignment Review Board.  If approved, the GB will be placed on the waiting list and offered UH on space available basis.

COMMUNITY HOUSING

All unaccompanied personnel eligible to live off-base in CONUS are highly encouraged to first check-in at the Housing Service Center (HSC).  The HSC provides assistance with locating off-base housing in the local area, including:
