If you are unsure of where you should "check in" for your new command in the Norfolk Naval Station area, call the Transient Personnel Unit Quarterdeck for directions and guidance as to proper check-in procedures. They can be reached 24 hours a day by calling 757-444-1640 or DSN 312-564-1640.
The Transient Personnel Unit is a component of the Naval Station Norfolk and is headed by a Commanding Officer. The unit consists of an Administrative Services Department, Administrative Discharges Division, Master-At-Arms Force, Maintenance Department, Discipline Department, Transient Personnel Department, Enlisted Performance, and Legal Department.
The mission of TPU is to expeditiously process sailors through administrative, transfer, discipline, and/or medical transition pipelines for commands who, because of deployment or overseas location, can not provide appropriate facilitation themselves.
If you check aboard during normal working hours, please report to Naval Station Admin located in Bldg. J-50. If you check aboard after normal working hours, please report to the Duty Office located in Bldg. J-50.
Documents to Hand Carry
Keep copies of all important papers these should include: orders, passports, birth certificates, marriage certificates, ID cards, insurance cards, etc. Keep your sponsor, quarterdeck, and command ombudsman phone numbers with you at all times.
Make lodging reservations in advance, make kennel arrangements for pets if you will be staying in the military lodge system or hotel/motels that are not pet friendly. Keep important travel numbers with you such as Red Cross, Navy Marine Corp Relief Society (NMCRS) Fleet and Family Support Centers (FFSC) and remember to have a safe and fun trip!
Service members are strongly encouraged to ask their detaching or gaining command about Temporary Lodging Expense or Temporary Lodging Allowance, which can off-set the cost of temporary housing at the losing or gaining duty station.
