The Housing Service Center staff is ready to assist unaccompanied personnel reporting to NAS Oceana and Dam Neck Annex and will help determine housing eligibility and options. Unaccompanied personnel assigned to these dormitories should report directly to the Unaccompanied Housing Office upon arrival. Normally, there will be no need for temporary quarters. However, Dam Neck students on per diem orders are sent to Navy Gateway Inns & Suites in Building 566A, Stethem Hall.

There are 13 buildings and 2,846 beds for permanent party personnel and students at NAS Oceana and Dam Neck Annex. Unaccompanied Housing rooms are clean, well-maintained and fully furnished. Our facilities include other amenities such as lounges with pool tables, pub tables and chairs, and large, flat-screen TVs. Each facility includes laundry rooms for your convenience. There are outdoor gazebos with grills. All facilities are within walking distance of all other base amenities.

Six buildings at NAS Oceana have private rooms, sharing one bathroom and common kitchen area with one refrigerator/freezer and one microwave. The other buildings have rooms that are shared by two to include: two twin beds, one bathroom, one microwave and one refrigerator/freezer. Dam Neck Annex has one student building with rooms shared by two and includes one common bathroom, microwave and refrigerator/freezer. The other building has private rooms. Residents pay for cable service and Wi-Fi.


Depending on your assignment status (shore duty, sea duty, student, etc.) and pay grade, your options may include Navy Unaccompanied Housing (UH) or housing in the local community.

Sea and shore duty personnel within pay grades E-1 through E-4 can expect to reside in permanent party UH if stationed at NAS Oceana or, if orders are to Dam Neck Annex, personnel will reside in student quarters at Dam Neck.

Based on local conditions, 50 to 75 percent of E-4s with more than four years of service may be housed in UH.

Students will reside in one of our student housing facilities. More senior personnel are expected to reside in the local community.

UH is government-owned and managed housing. Eligibility is based on your pay grade and BAH entitlement.

Geographic Bachelors (GB) is personnel ordered to NAS Oceana or Dam Neck Annex who, by choice or circumstance, decided that their dependents will continue to live in another geographic area. GBs are receiving BAH at the with-dependents rate. They are not normally authorized to live in UH; however, they may be approved on a space-available basis. GBs must submit an application that will be reviewed by the Assignment Review Board. Applications for NAS Oceana and Dam Neck Annex are available at the Unaccompanied Housing Office in Building 536. If approved, the GB will be placed on the waiting list and offered UH when it becomes available. GBs may also apply to be resident advisers. For more information about the GB program and to obtain an application, please contact the UH Administrative Office, Building 536 prior to arrival.
