Billeting at San Diego MCRD
What is Billeting?
Billeting is the military terminology used to define transient housing, guest housing, and/or other accomodations while traveling. Generally, billeting accomodations would be located on a military installation.

MCRD San Diego Billeting
In addition to providing lodging for single Marines, transient lodging services are provided similar to a quality hotel or motel for the following types of guests:

  • Active Duty Military and DoD Civilains on Temporary Duty Orders
  • Active Duty Military and their families on PCS Orders
  • Guests of the Commanding General
  • Active and Retired Military on a Space Available basis
  • Families of Graduating Recruits

To make reservations
Call 619-524-4401 or visit MCRD San Diego Billeting Website

A Couple Notes:
You can make your reservation beginning exactly 30 days from your scheduled arrival on a first come, first serve basis for rooms. Your reservation can be "bumped" up until the day before arrival. Remember, you are a guest on a military installation when you stay in billeting, as well as a guest of your future Marine. Your actions on the Depot are a direct reflection on your future Marine. Please be courteous and respectful.

May 9, 2013: For approximately the next 12 months, there will be renovation construction that will limit the number of rooms available for recruits' parents at MCRD San Diego. Currently, MCRD San Diego is limiting the number of persons per recruit to a maximum of 4. This will remain in effect until they have their full inventory of rooms back. Please continue to call to see if space is available for your recruit's graduation. MCRD San Diego wants to make every effort to allow as many parents as possible to see their recruit graduate. Your patience during this time will go a long way in allowing as many parents as possible to experience staying on base.

Yes, as the family member of a graduating Recruit, you CAN stay in Billeting Housing at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) San Diego during graduation regardless of whether or not you are former military.

It's really easy and convenient to stay in the billeting facilities and it's truly a beautiful area. The prices are very affordable. To be "on the base" really adds to the ambiance of graduation. See photos below. There is a private vanity in each room in addition to an ironing board and a coffee pot with coffee and filters.

While some of the rooms are joining and share a bathroom, these rooms are given to one family to share. Families will never have to share a bathroom with another family, unless they choose to. In the event that only a male family member is attending and the facilities are short on space, the office will ask if he would be willing to occupy a private room but share the bath. Female family members will not be asked to share a bathroom.

Please note: Family-style rooms are kept available for families of Recruits 95% of the time. However, in the rare event that the billeting facilities need to be made available for service members on orders, space-available reservations will be canceled.

It is also important to note that once the family's Recruit graduates and leaves the Depot, the family may no longer stay aboard the Depot.

To make reservations:

Reservations can be made beginning 30 days prior to your arrival. They cannot be made earlier than that.

The last four digits of your Recruit's social security number are required when making reservations. Please have that information available before calling to make reservations.

Location of MCRD San Diego Billeting:
MCRDSD Billeting is located in Bldg 625, adjacent to Gate 4 and behind the Base Exchange.
