Hampton Roads military families and eligible single service members (with dependents) may live in Private - Public Venture (PPV) privatized housing areas throughout the region. Housing is located in and around the base as well as privatized housing located in the local community.
All military personnel, married or single, reporting to sea or shore commands in the Hampton Roads area are required to report to the Regional Housing Referral Office in Norfolk before signing any agreement for non-government quarters. The Regional Housing Referral Office is authorized to maintain a signed acknowledgement of notification to military members of any housing areas restricted by sanction.
The Hampton Roads region has several housing areas. There are 18 enlisted housing areas with a total 3902 units, 6 officer housing areas with a total of 226 units and 37 flag officer units. The housing assignment is predicated upon your needs and availability. Wait time can be as little as 0-3 months, or as long as 18-24 months. For a current list of wait times go to the CNIC Housing Web site .
Priority of assignment to Government housing is determined by the date of detachment (control date) from your last permanent duty station, provided you check in and apply for government housing within the first thirty days after your arrival. If you complete the application after the thirty day window the control date becomes the date you turn in your application.

E4 under 4 stationed ashore will stay in the barracks and be put on a waiting list until the BH manning reaches 95%. E4 under 4 may be eligible to reside out in town and receive BAH entitlements.
