Housing

Residents may live in either on-post quarters or off-post in civilian housing. Typical military housing is a duplex or townhome. The number of bedrooms is dictated by the number of dependents you have. Soldiers assigned to Tripler usually live in one of three housing areas: Tripler, Fort Shafter, or Aliamanu Military Reservation (AMR). Fort Shafter and AMR are both within several miles of the hospital. If you choose to live in on-post quarters, then your BAH is forfeited. You pay nothing for basic utilities (electricity, water). These units are unfurnished.

There is a wide range of off-post housing available in the civilian community. Our residents live in neighborhoods throughout the island, with most choosing to live in urban Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, or suburban windward Oahu (Kailua and Kaneohe). Some residents purchase homes or condos, but there are good rental properties (apartments to single family homes) available, which are affordable with the generous housing allowance on Oahu.

Household Goods

Military:

The military pays to move your household goods to Hawaii. Additionally, the military will pay to put any designated items into non-temporary storage on the mainland. This may be necessary if you have a significant amount of household goods, particularly if you choose to live in on-post quarters as these homes are smaller than ones in the community.
The military also pays to ship one car from the mainland to Hawaii.

VA:

Moving expenses are not reimbursed for civilian residents.
