Special Note about Okinawa Family Housing Renovation
The 18th Wing has undertaken a comprehensive renovation program that will invest nearly $500 million over five years from 2017-2021 to renovate military family housing aboard Okinawa. The work will be executed in phases such that various housing areas will be unavailable for assignment during this period. Accordingly, more families will be required to live off base during the renovation period. Personnel living off base enjoy the same access to DODEA schools, AAFES shopping and other on-base resources as those living in military family housing.
* For examples of off-base housing, please visit: HOMES.mil
(use "Kadena AB" in the search menu). This site shows a wide variety of off-base housing options. Keep in mind that all housing searches first begin with a visit to the housing office at Kadena Air Base.
Special Note about Temporary Lodging
Inbound personnel may occupy temporary lodging awaiting an on-base housing assignment or an off-base rental. Accompanied personnel require a certificate of non-availability (CNA) from the transient lodging facility (TLF) to utilize off-base temporary lodging. The WestPac Inn is the Marine Corps TLF aboard Camp Foster. Unaccompanied personnel must obtain a CNA from the unaccompanied housing office to be eligible for TLA. A CNA from the TLF does not create a TLA entitlement for unaccompanied personnel.
Special note about Camp Mujuk and Combined Arms Training Center (CATC) Fuji
Camp Mujuk and CATC Fuji currently have very few accompanied positions for military and civilian personnel. Family housing and referral services are available at adjacent installations such as Naval Air Station (NAS) Atusgi in Japan and U.S. Army Garrison Daegu in Korea. Contact either the installation or the MCIPAC housing liaison in Okinawa for additional information.
