    Question can i live on a base my husband isn't stationed at?

    Advertisements
    sorry if this isn't in the right spot, i wasn't sure if i should post here or moves and relocation.

    anyway my husband is getting deployed soon, and i was thinking about moving back home and getting a place out there. i was wondering if i would be able to live on base without my husband being stationed there? i'm thinking no but hoping yes lol.

    I think it depends on the base, actually. Privatized housing sometimes rents to people who aren't on orders, and sometimes even to civilians.

    Yeah it depends on the base.. I know on Oahu, HI you can be put on the list. The wait is longer and it goes to those stationed their first. i hope this helps.

    I would ask the housing people. We lived in base housing in Yorktown while DH was stationed in Va Beach.

    I would call and ask rules have changed. I think if you are not stationed within a 50 mile radius of the base you have to get permission. The first time we lived on base DH was recruiting and this was before privatization so he was not attached to the base we lived on. However we were able to live there with no problems.

    As PP have said the privatized companies are able to rent to civilians and contractors if there are empty houses. I know that if the demand changes for base housing to higher priority families IE families attached to that base then the contractors, civilians, retired, ect folks are required to move out. So you might be lumped in that group but it is worth checking out. I know that at the previous base we were at there were families who stayed in base housing after their SM PCS'ed to a different location.

    I am not saying this is the norm but its worth a phone call to the housing office.

    I really think it depends if it's privatized housing or not. I know here anyone can get a place, even civilians.
