JB PEARL HARBOR HICKAM HOUSING: 29 ON-BASE OPTIONS
By Chris Walker
IntroductionWelcome to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, located in the southern area of the beautiful island of Oahu, just outside of the city of Honolulu. The base is a joint one between the Navy and Air Force and each has their own housing office and specific neighborhoods depending on which side of the base you are reporting. The Air Force’s Hickam communities are mostly located on base but the Navy’s community housing is spread across not only the base but surrounding areas of the island. There are LOTS of neighborhoods to choose from. If you don’t plan on investing in buying property on the island or don’t want to search for a rental, base housing is a great, safe, and convenient option. This guide will help you figure out your on-base housing options on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam and get you started.
