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:
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.
HOUSING APPLICATION PROCESS
