WELCOME TO Naval Station (NAVSTA) Newport

Naval Station (NAVSTA) Newport traces its history back to 1881, when the Navy acquired Coasters Harbor Island from the state of Rhode Island. On June 4, 1883, the island became home to the Navy’s first recruit training station. A year later, on Oct. 6, 1884, the Naval War College was established on the island.

Today, the installation serves as "a world-class center of learning excellence," supporting nearly 50 U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Army Reserve commands and other federal government activities. It remains a U.S. Navy premier site for training officers, officer candidates, senior enlisted leaders and midshipman candidates, as well as supporting training for several enlisted personnel rates for Sailors and Marines.  NAVSTA is also the home to Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Division Newport which is one of two Navy full-spectrum research, development, test and evaluation, engineering, and fleet support centers for submarine warfare systems and many other systems associated with the undersea battlespace.
