Hawaii is a very high cost area and housing can be one of the most expensive items. Be sure to visit your local Family Center for relocation planning assistance.
Prior to renting, leasing, purchasing or making arrangements for housing on or off-post, all military personnel with dependents are required to report to their respective Housing Services Office within five days of arrival.
Housing Services Office – The HSO prepares temporary lodging allowance paperwork as well as provides an in-depth briefing on renting. HSO is your contact for any problems you may encounter such as discrimination complaints, tenant/landlord disputes or any questions or problems about off-post housing. The HSO will provide you a list of rentals with corresponding locator maps and give you information regarding the communities in which the rentals are located.
The first month's rent and an additional deposit equal to one month's rent are generally required. You should expect that utilities will not be included in your monthly rent. Utility deposits are typically required, but deposit waivers are usually granted to military personnel. In general, housing in Hawaii is smaller and designed differently than most continental U.S. locations. Although Hawaii is a full weight allowance area for the shipment of household goods, it is a good idea to contact the housing office in Hawaii before making a permanent change of station move for a pre-move assessment on what to ship and what to put into storage.
The HSO will provide in-depth briefings for those new to the island.

At the regional leasing office, your application will be processed and your name added to the appropriate waiting list. You will receive information on availability of homes and waiting time.

IPC homes are pet-friendly with a two-pet maximum per family. Certain pet restrictions do apply. There is a one- time pet fee per pet upon move-in and a one-time deflea charge per household upon move-out.
Waiting times vary according to supply versus demand for desired quarters at any given time. Average wait time for enlisted families range from immediate to one month. Due to its limited availability and demand, average wait time for officer housing can be up to the duration of Temporary Lodging Allowance maximum allowable time of 60 days after arrival. Peak season is June through August due to high volume of PCS moves inbound and outbound.
Number of Units
There are 7910 homes. Housing within the IPC is highly occupied and has many different styles of homes. There is normally a wait on every waitlist, so the total count should not be misconstrued as availability at any given time. Please check in with IPC Leasing Office for the most up-to-date availability information.
The NCO units have two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, and the SNCO, CGO, FGO and colonel units have three, four and five-bedroom homes.
The eligibility date is the date the service member signs out of his last duty station (not temporary duty travel locations) and is placed on the applicable waiting list by rank (with the exclusion of certain ranks), number of command sponsored dependents on orders and location (north or south). Adjustments to the eligibility date will be made for unaccompanied or other special-duty tours. When placed on the waiting list, the service member must provide a copy of orders upon assignment to the waiting list.
Single Service Member Housing
All E6 and above are allowed to occupy his/her own unit. Unaccompanied E5 and below are also eligible to live in IPC single soldier housing sharing an apartment with a similar rank and gender. Barracks spaces are strictly reserved for single soldiers E1-E5 who do not receive any Basic Allowance for Housing entitlement.
Exceptional Family Member Housing
IPC has homes available to meet the requirements of special needs families in most of our communities. A medical request for a specific type of home is recommended to be submitted to the Tripler Army Medical Center Medical Board prior to arriving in Hawaii through IPC Leasing Office. A decision is made within 14 business days of the request, and resubmissions are allowed. If the decision requires a specific type of home, IPC will try to locate the home on or before arrival and provide an approximate wait time. Not all the homes in IPC inventory come with central air. If it is absolutely required for a medical condition, a medical request needs to be submitted to the Medical Board. Priority on the waitlist may or may not be granted by the Medical Board. IPC follows the specific direction of the Medical Board in housing families with medical or special needs.
