There are over 33,000 military families in the San Diego area. Approximately 25% of these families are housed in government quarters. There are 9,130 government homes located in 38 housing sites throughout San Diego. Of these homes, 8,580 are enlisted units and 550 are officer units. Depending on the housing site selected, waiting times can be as little as 0-3 months, or as long as 18-24 months or more.

San Diego has entered into a Public Private Venture (PPV) with Lincoln BP Management, Inc., a private property management company. Members who reside in a PPV unit are required to sign a six-month lease and pay - via allotment - the equivalent of the member's monthly Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) rate. Some neighborhoods may offer discounted rates. The Navy has joined both Lincoln and Clarke Construction to improve and expand housing for service members and their families.

Naval Base San Diego offers barracks and privatized housing to qualified single service members. It is the responsibility of the service member to check into the Billeting Office for room assignment.

San Diego offers the nation's first large-scale privatized effort for single service members. Four 18 story residential towers located on Naval Base San Diego offer resort style amenities and world class services such as a sky terrace with heated resort style pool and Jacuzzi, roof top lounges with barbeques and spectacular bay and city views, 24 hr concierge service, a Wi-Fi cafe, game rooms, basketball and sand volleyball courts, horseshoe pits and running track on site, and three fitness centers.

Private bedroom suites include full bath, balcony or private garden, a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, as well as individual washer and dryers in all units.
