    Questions about the Norfolk barracks

    Advertisements
    How does it work?
    Will I be allowed to stay with him?
    If I can't stay with him and have to get a hotel will he be able to sleep at the hotel with me?
    Do they have curfews?
    Are they nice on the inside?
    Will he most likely have a roomate?

    TIA!

    you won't be able to stay with him. he may be able to get into the per diem barracks and you *might* be able to stay with him in that, but not like every day. when my husband and i first got here they had us in separate barracks, even though we were married. we moved out 4 days later to get our own place.

    didn't answer all the questions. since you guys are not married and you are not his dependent, unfortunately that means they will not provide a place for you to stay. if he is in the regular barracks, they are pretty crappy. the per diem barracks however is more like a hotel. they clean your room for you and give you money to live there.

    If I can't stay with him and have to get a hotel will he be able to sleep at the hotel with me? he should be, since he is an E-4 and has been in long enough to not be on the phase system.
    Do they have curfews? not for him.
    Are they nice on the inside? not exceptionally
    Will he most likely have a roomate? if he's in regular barracks, yes.

    I will only be there for 2 nights. He is only going to be in the barracks for a month. He is getting flown home from deployment this week because his last day in the navy is before the actual ship comes back.

    I don't know if that information makes a difference

    Thank you! I think I would rather stay at a hotel anyways...i can't picture both us fitting in a twin size bed.
    I am so impatient! I just have to wait a few more days to see how this will work once he is back in the states, but I want to know now!!!!!!!!

    Same with him. The first 2 years he stayed on the ship when he was stationed in FL. and then in Norfolk he had an apartment, so he never had to live in the barracks.

    He has to check into TPU when he gets back. It's Temporary something something. pretty much bullshit work on base until May 15th.
