Working hours at SWRMC are from 0700 - 1500. You are required to be present for quarters at your designated place of duty no later than 0730 and work until 1630 unless otherwise instructed by your shop supervisor.

Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH)

Per Commander Navy Region Southwest Policy, E6 and below sailors receiving BAH without dependents must re-apply upon reporting to a new command (i.e. SWRMC).

Failure to abide by this local policy will be cause for non-reimbursable loss of entitlements. It is highly encouraged to check in with SWRMC Military Manpower with required documentation on first day. This will help to ensure continuity of allowances.


BACHELOR ENLISTED AND BACHELOR OFFICER QUARTERS (BEQ/BOQ) billets are arranged through SATO: 1-800-576-9237. Berthing at Naval Station and surrounding bases is normally available.

PLEASE ENSURE RESERVATIONS FOR BERTHING STATE YOU ARE BEING ASSIGNED TO SWRMC SAN DIEGO! If reservations do not state your assignment to SWRMC San Diego, you will be required to pay for your entire stay in berthing upon arrival.

The standing policy between SWRMC San Diego Reserve Affairs and billeting offices on surrounding bases states that reserve personnel assigned to SWRMC San Diego will not be required to pay for berthing up front; however, upon completion of Annual Training, members will be required to show proof of payment for berthing. Reserve Affairs will retain the member’s orders until proof of payment is shown. In the event that payment is not made and the member decides to skip out, recoupment processes will be initiated.

Note: In the event that berthing is not available and members are assigned to hotels or the Navy Lodge in the surrounding area, the policy is considerably the same. Members must produce a copy of their hotel registration and a receipt showing the total cost for stay. Reserve Affairs will draft a letter to the hotel and have them delay payment until the end of the Annual Training. A Certificate of Non- availability (CNA) is required to obtain funding for hotels. The CNA should be reflected on the itinerary for travel or can be obtained at central billeting.
