This includes help finding rooms for rent, roommate finder assistance for finding group homes, and counseling to first-time renters.
Community housing is the primary source of housing for single E5 personnel and above, and other single personnel eligible to receive Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). Those under E5 must obtain approval by the Installation Commanding Officer to live in the community.

Navy Housing houses as many E4s with more than four years’ service as possible. Permanent party E1–E3s are normally assigned to shared sleeping rooms with no more than two Sailors sharing a bath. E4s are normally assigned to private sleeping rooms with no more than two sharing a bath.
