    Curious question for Norfolk area military housing

    Advertisements
    Have you ever heard of one getting a 3 br house and only have a total of 2 dependents and NOT being "O" or senior enlisted?! I'm curious to find out how lenient the housing office is there...lol!

    The number of bedrooms goes on the number of children, and rank. I've been in contact w/the housing down there numerous times now. It never hurts to just call and ask. Do you need the phone number or website?

    I've got all the info, I'm just wondering if anyone has ever heard of it happening. I'm hoping the ROTC unit can pull some strings for us.

    I wouldn't say never but the military housing in Hampton Rds is generally full with waiting lists for upwards of 1 to 2 years wait. You can always try but if you really want a 3 bedroom I would look into renting or buying.

    There are several people in my housing unit that have 3 bedrooms with one child because they are renovating everything. I got in a two bedroom with no kids in 2 months...granted I was up there almost weekly. There is a chance but don't count on it. Besides I like the 2 bedrooms in my complex much more than the 3 bedrooms. 3 Bedrooms the rooms are REALLY small and 2 bedrooms are big. Let me know if you have any questions I can answer

    I have been looking into houses there. They are nice for the most part that I have seen so far.

    Thanks!!!!
    We'll be arriving there late July, or early August. We're checking out of the current command on April 20th. So our housing application should be backdated to that date. So hopefully the list won't be too long once we actually arrive into town.

    DH and I got on the housing list (2bedroom, it's just us) and 2 days later they called us and had a house for us!!! And we were put on the 12-16 month waiting list! We were really lucky and I don't know how it happened but it could very well happen w/ you too!
