Government Housing

Government Housing, or Marinai, is an installation-sponsored, off-base location. The quarters consists of three and four bedroom townhouse style homes designed to meet American standards which include a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, and dryer.


Members should visit the Housing Services Center no later than 48 hours after their arrival to apply for Government Housing. If housing is not readily available, members have the option to seek community housing. Please communicate with your sponsor or the Housing Services Center soon regarding your housing options and how to apply.

Pet Policies in Government Housing

Only two pets are authorized to stay in government family housing and pets must be cats or dogs.

Single Service Members

E-1 - E-4 are required to live in Unaccompanied Housing on one of the two bases. Assignments are based on eligibility and do not guarantee you will reside on the same base that you work on. All rooms have a microwave, refrigerator and stovetop. You or your sponsor should contact the Housing Services Center to arrange a "door-to-door" move to ensure you have a room upon arrival (incoming TLA is not authorized).

In addition, you can participate to the new "Roommate Matching Program" and select the characteristics of your desired roommate. Ask your sponsor about the program or contact the Housing Service Center.

Unaccompanied E-5 and above and geographical bachelors should expect to live in the community (Economy Housing). Apartments or villas can be leased for the duration of your tour. Additionally, you should not ship American appliances since they will be provided through the Housing Department. You must contact the Housing Service Center before signing a lease.

Housing maintains information on furnished and non-furnished options.

Non-Government Housing

The housing market in the area consists of apartments and villas. Apartments are generally one floor of a house and villas are single homes with a fenced perimeter. All properties must pass the Housing inspection before you can reside there. It is important to realize that you must pay upfront for the first two-month rent, in euro, which usually consists of the first month's rent and security deposit. It is highly advisable to anticipate this cost.

The cost of living is higher than most US locations. Please refer to the Per Diem, Travel, Transportation and Allowance Committee website at for COLA rates for this location.

Please refer to the NAS Sigonella website for further information on Housing.
