Reporting as a Staff Member to NPTU

You should receive a Welcome Aboard Letter with the name of your sponsor prior to reporting. It is recommended that you contact your sponsor prior to transfer. If you have not received your Welcome Aboard Letter or message, and you are 60 days away from transferring, please contact the NPTU Command Sponsor Coordinator (518) 884-3680 or here (518) 884-1252 (Admin).

  • If you desire house hunting leave and did not take it before transferring, you will need to report before the ‘no later than’ day in your orders. There will not be enough time available once you start the indoctrination process.
  • There is no temporary lodging available while transitioning. If you need to stay in a hotel while awaiting arrival of household goods, you’ll need to make reservations via one of the local accommodations. During the horse racing season (July to early September), local hotels are normally booked, but rooms will be available in the Clifton Park and Glens Falls areas.
  • NSA’s Housing Office (518-886-0200 x124) is an excellent resource for government housing and long-term or short-term rentals.

Sailors reporting to NPTU for Staff Duty shall report to NPTU Admin in the Uniform of the Day (Navy Working Uniform) between the hours of 8:30 am – 3:30 pm (M-F).
