Barracks and Dorms
UH is conveniently located on NAVSTA Guantanamo Bay, housing approximately 1,600 in 3 buildings and approximately 1500 JTF Service Members in 2 diverted housing areas:
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.
Accommodations are one or two persons to a room based on pay grade and square footage. Building 1670 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.
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.
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 E5 to E9 (E4 with their commanding officer’s recommendation), including GBs. For more information about the RA program and to obtain an application, please contact the UH Administrative Office.
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, however, since (NAVSTA) Guantanamo Bay is a closed base we must house all in accordance with UH regulations. 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.
