Living Quarters and Reservations

Upon arrival, report directly to Combined Bachelors Quarters (CBQ) (Bldg 1312) for your room assignment and room key. Your BEQ reservation is taken care of for you based on class seating assignment; you do not need to call for a confirmation number. DO NOT REPORT EARLIER THAN authorized by your orders. In the event you arrive from overseas, call the SEA at 401-841-4221 (not the CBQ) for assistance. Failing to do so may result in room non-availability and lose of reimbursement for the extra day(s) you are aboard Naval Station Newport.
The CBQ calculates your lodging bills to your room at the end of each month. Payment is due no later than the fifteenth of the following month. Make payments with cash, check, money order, or credit card. All bills to the CBQ must be paid in full prior to departure from the SEA. You must show a copy of your paid receipt to your Faculty Advisor before departing.
Because of the nature of the Senior Enlisted Academy and your duty status, having your family with you in the Newport area is not practical. This school is an unaccompanied temporary duty station. Transportation of dependents to the temporary duty station is not authorized. Doing so will result in termination of your per diem and family separation allowance entitlements. While residential accommodations are available, they are expensive (double in tourist season) and very difficult to find near the base. However, your family is certainly welcome to join you for the graduation banquet and ceremony.
Visit the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites site for more information.

**Bachelor Quarters Note: The CBQ does NOT accept American Express. Additionally, they recommend service members utilize their Goverment Travel card verses a personal debit card.
