Housing

For U.S. Naval War College military personnel, the On-Base Housing options available at the Naval Station Newport Navy Housing office may be the best choice. Whether your eventual housing is on-base or off, the Housing office has excellent resources to help you secure a home in the surrounding communities that best fits your needs and budget. Living either on Aquidneck Island, or in the nearby region (including Jamestown, Barrington, Bristol, Kingston, etc.) offers multiple housing options for your quality of comfort.

For those for whom On-Base Housing is not a viable option, the real estate market on Aquidneck Island and the nearby areas is dynamic. You will want to carefully consider your options, your budget, and important factors such as winter driving and schools.
