Service members enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program requesting priority housing are encouraged to contact the Base Housing Office at least 60 to 90 days before checking into Camp Pendleton.

If government quarters are not assigned, Housing Referral Services are available for finding off-base housing. The Housing Referral Services office, located in Building 1138, provides up-to-date listings and rates of apartments and private homes for sale or rent. Military personnel reporting to Camp Pendleton for permanent duty are required to report to the Base Housing Office at Building 1138 before making a rental or sales commitment in the civilian community.
Housing Referral Office
The Housing Referral Office is your contact for any problems you may encounter such as discrimination complaints, tenant/landlord disputes or any questions or problems about off-base housing. The HRO will provide you a list of rentals with corresponding locator maps and give you information regarding the communities in which the rentals are located.
All renters should carry renter’s insurance against fire, theft and other damages. The property owner's insurance will cover the property but not the renter’s personal property. Ask about the Rental Partnership Program if planning to rent an apartment. It is recommended you transfer coverage after you arrive.
