TRAVEL TO NAVAL STATION NEWPORT

If Flying:

Upon arrival at T.F. Green Airport (Providence/Warwick, RI, website*):

Please make your way to the ground transportation in the baggage claim area.

The airport is 29 miles from the base. Taxi fare from the airport to Naval Station Newport is approximately $100. Officer Training Command does not endorse any Taxi service; however be advised that not all Taxi companies have access to Naval Station Newport.  Taxis without base access authorization can go no further than the main gate of the Naval Station. If you use a taxi without base access, you may contact the Command Duty Officer (CDO) at 401‑862‑4321 when you arrive at the Main Gate and the CDO will arrange for the Duty Driver to pick you up. Only a few Taxi services are authorized to bring you onto the Naval Station and can therefore bring you directly to Training Country.  Verify with the Taxi driver or taxi company that the driver can access the base.

**Every attempt should be made to fly into TF Green Airport. Students flown into Boston, MA will need to take a taxi to Naval Station Newport, which is extremely expensive, and will then be reimbursed with submission of a receipt. A rental car from the airport is not authorized unless specifically stated in your military orders.

Automobiles:

You must be protected by liability insurance for personal injury of a minimum of $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident, and $10,000 property damage before you are permitted to operate the vehicle on the Newport Naval complex. Due to the large number of students throughout OTC, especially in the summer, parking can be limited and will be at some distance from your living quarters. Students are not allowed to utilize staff parking areas.

If arriving in Newport prior to the Sunday report date, you will need to make your own lodging accommodations as Officer Candidate School does not have the capability to house students prior to the designated report date. You can find lodging information at the bottom of the page.

Officer Development School (ODS), Direct Commission Officer Indoctrination Course (DCOIC) and Naval Science Institute (NSI)

Upon arrival to OTC, check-in wearing appropriate civilian attire and report to King Hall, Building 291 Quarter Deck (Main Entrance).  You will be directed to your quarters (room) and will be given additional guidance on Sunday afternoon.

Lodging in King Hall is available after 1600 on Friday.  Do not arrive before this time.  Follow the arrival time as stated in your orders. The first event begins Sunday afternoon at approximately 1300.  If you have questions understanding your orders, contact your recruiter or OTC Admin Support at 401-841-2264 (during normal business hours).  If you are going to be late, contact the OTCN Command Duty Officer (CDO) at (401)862-4321.
