The directions and map provided here are intended as a reference. Please go to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's website for current roadway information.

Visitors to the base must obtain a visitor pass from the Visitor Control Center.  Visitors are defined as persons not assigned, employed or attached to Naval Support Activity Philadelphia or tenant commands.  Visitors to NSA Philadelphia must possess a valid reason for entry and have proper identification in order to gain access.  Visitors must report to the Visitor Control Center, located at the Main Gate on Robbins Ave., upon arrival at the installation.  The office is open Monday to Friday 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Please call (215) 697-4259 for more information.

To register a vehicle on base please bring the following items to the Visitor Control Center:

  • Valid Vehicle Registration form
  • Valid Insurance
  • Valid Drivers License
  • Valid CAC or DoD identification card

Note: To register a vehicle all forms must be in your name or have a notarized letter of consent from the owner



NSA Philadelphia, under direction from CNIC, is implementing significant changes to its access procedures to increase the security of the installation.  These new procedures will directly impact vendors, contractors, sub-contractors, and service providers who regularly access NSA Philadelphia.

To summarize the impact: due to safety and security requirements, access will be delayed if you are accessing the installation using a NSA Philadelphia Contractor Activity Badge or Day Pass.  Part of the increase in security will require additional individual and vehicle screenings that will occur during each visit.  To gain streamlined access onto the installation, we encourage you to review the benefits of the RAPIDGate program.


NSA Philadelphia is serviced by the Washington D.C. PSD command.  Visit PSD Washington's website for more information.
