The NAVSTA Newport Housing Service Center (HSC) is ready to assist service members with finding off-base housing in the local community. Members are required to report to the Housing Service Center, Building 690, before committing to private housing off-base. The HSC staff is available to review lease agreements as well as assist with information on security deposits, check-in/out inspections, military clauses, group sharing and more. Additionally, the HSC staff will help ensure that all personnel receive fair and equal opportunity for housing in the community.
The HSC utilizes the DoD-sponsored AHRN program for all off-base referrals. AHRN is an online database containing a large selection of unfurnished and furnished properties ranging in price from approximately $800 to $3,000 per month, plus utilities, depending on size, location and amenities. The properties listed in the AHRN database are located within a one-hour commute of NAVSTA Newport and are easily accessible. Information on how to access the AHRN program can be obtained by contacting the HSC.
Due to Newport’s reputation as being a famous tourist area, short-term furnished rentals are expensive and scarce during the summer months.
NAVSTA Newport no longer operates a mobile home park. Additionally, community mobile home lots are extremely difficult to obtain within the commuting area.
Subsidized housing complexes are available within the commuting area. The HSC staff is available to assist you with your search for subsidized housing.
