Housing Resources

The Housing Service Center’s trained professionals can help you choose the right housing to meet your needs, whether in Military Family or Unaccompanied Housing or in one of San Diego’s unique neighborhoods. The Housing Service Center (HSC) maintains a current database of available off-base community rental properties for homes, apartments and townhomes. Rental properties listed with the HSC are inspected for suitability by our housing referral professionals.


HOMES.mil is a new official Department of Defense (DoD) website, dedicated to helping Service members, Families, and DOD civilians find housing.

Housing Early Application Tool (HEAT)

Navy Housing has developed HEAT to assist service members (SVMs) and their families in applying for housing Navywide. HEAT allows SVMs and their families to get the housing application process started at one or more Navy installations online before or after they receive their Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. HEAT is available to any SVM at all Navy installations. HEAT creates an easy user experience to connect with your destination. Spouses can use the application as well, needing only minimal information about their SVM. One of our housing referral professionals will be in touch within 2 business days.
