Members are eligible for quarters aboard MCB Hawaii if they are on active duty and assigned to duty at MCB Hawaii with accompanying, command-sponsored dependents. Marines assigned to other duty stations on Oahu may also apply for and occupy MCB Hawaii quarters.
Newly arrived service members must report to the housing office within three working days and are required to have their Permanent Change of Station orders, Reporting Endorsement and a Letter of Command Sponsorship. Sponsors with family members enrolled in the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) should notify the housing office as early as possible if a special health or physical disability exists to allow ample time to arrange for those needs. Members collecting Temporary Lodging Allowances (TLA) should be aware that if they decline an offer for quarters, TLA will terminate effective the day before the quarters would have been assigned.
In 1996, under the provisions of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative, Congress authorized the legislation for a Public-Private Venture (PPV) partnership with the private sector. As a result, our partnership with Forest City (http:// www.fcmarineshawaii.com) has enabled homes to be constructed faster and more efficiently. The quality of life for Marines and Sailors living aboard Marine Corps Base Hawaii has been greatly enhanced. Homes are more spacious, of high quality and designed to meet the needs of the service members and their families.
Marine Corps Base Hawaii’s family housing inventory of 2,317 units underwent privatization starting in 2006.
You may be placed on a housing waiting list in advance, once we receive your DD1746 (Application for Assignment to Housing) and a copy of your orders. Print the application and fax it to 808-257-1259 or DSN 457-1259. If you have an e-mail address, please include this information in your application.
Once your application has been sent, please allow ten working days for information to be added to our database. However, you will not be offered a house prior to physically arriving and officially reporting for duty.
Upon arrival, all service members accompanied by command-sponsored dependents must report to the Family Housing Office located on MCB Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, at 1571 Lawrence Road. Hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday
and Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; Wednesday, 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
You can accept and move into housing up to 14 days before your family arrives.

Pets in Housing

Licenses must be renewed on or before the expiration date of current tags. Applications for the license may be obtained from the Hawaii Humane Society or any Satellite City Hall. All cats are required to have an identification tag on their collar with the owner’s name, address and telephone number.
Prohibited pets include gerbils, hamsters, mongoose, monkeys, white mice and white rats (foreign source), wild rabbits, game or hunting birds, pigeons, doves, poultry, Aztec dwarf parrots, Vietnamese pot bellied pigs, Monk parakeets and certain Myna species, as well as certain dog species.
