San Diego military family housing falls under the jurisdiction of the commander of Naval Bases San Diego and is scattered throughout the county. Currently, there are 26 Navy and Marine Corps military family housing areas in San Diego. Additional housing units are being acquired through leases, acquisition of existing structures, public-private ventures and expansion through construction.
When filing for government housing, service members must choose a specific property’s waiting list on which to be placed. The length of the waiting list for any specific housing area depends on a number of factors such as location, current renovations and the ranks allowed in the area. The average waiting period is 6 to 36 months.
Service members can obtain housing application by submitting a transfer order copy, DEERS information (DD form 1172) with a local housing application or DD Form 1746 (application for assignment to housing) showing detachment date. Applications can be submitted in person, faxed or mailed to the housing office. Submissions by mail or fax should be confirmed within 30 days of arrival.
