US Coast Guard Housing

Overview: Base housing is located less than a mile from the Air Station. Housing Units are comprised of 2, 3, and 4 bedroom family quarters. Quarters are governed by family size as outlined in COMDTINST M11101.13F, and Air Station Borinquen Housing Manual.


Assignment to Housing:  Single Coast Guard members in paygrades E-7 and above may elect not to occupy government quarters and are then entitled to an overseas housing allowance. All other Coast Guard active duty personnel, accompanied and unaccompanied, are expected to live in Coast Guard owned housing upon acceptance of orders to Air Station Borinquen. Exceptions may be approved on a case-by-case basis and a written release is required prior to procuring housing in the local community. Current Inter-Service Support Agreements provide housing to Army and Air Force personnel/families.

Renovation Project:  Air Station Borinquen Housing is currently undergoing a multi-phase renovation project. The Housing Office makes every effort to assign inbound members to renovated homes. In the event that a house is not yet ready for occupancy, members may be assigned to MWR Guest Housing with Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA).


Express Shipments (unaccompanied baggage): recommend six to eight weeks prior to your arrival.


Garages:  For units that do not have garages, one may be assigned from the available garage complexes in the housing area. Normal issue is one garage per family or one garage shared by 2 UPH members.



*Process is the same whether requesting “assignment to” or “release from” housing


When PCS orders are received, all incoming personnel must fax or email the following documents to the BQN housing office:

1. Housing Application (CG-5267)

2. Copy of your BAH Dependency Data Form from your Yeoman.

3. Copy of your completed Orders.

Housing Fax: (787) 890-8463. Main Housing line (for email address): (787) 890-8470.

Your sponsor is also a valuable asset for general inquiries and concerns regarding Borinquen housing.


Appliances: Family housing units are equipped with air conditioners, electric stoves, and refrigerators; however, you may ship your own refrigerator. Accompanied personnel must provide their own washer/dryer.

Furniture: While almost any type of furniture is acceptable, keep in mind that Puerto Rico is in the tropics; termites and corrosion are a threat. Storage space is limited in family units, consider leaving a portion of your household goods (HHG’s) in government non-temporary storage INCONUS. Personnel should check with housing and/or sponsors before shipment of HHG's.



HHGs: For members E-6 and below assigned to UPH, there is an administrative weight limitation of 2500 lbs., per the Joint Federal Travel Regulation. Members E-7 and above assigned to UPH have the option of shipping HHG’s up to the prescribed weight allowance, but should consider the size of their UPH housing and the option to place HHG’s in non-temporary storage prior to departing their previous unit.

Requests for pets in UPH are on a case by case basis for already-owned animals and must be approved prior to bringing any pet into the housing area. Purchasing/adopting of pets for UPH residents after arrival at the unit is not allowed.
