Hi BeverlyS, First off, you might want to join this group:

it is more active than this one.
There isn't an actual base for NPTU - it is on the campus of the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory - Kesselring facility, run by Bechtel Corp. you can use this address for reference (google maps references the guard gate to the facility): 360 Atomic Project Road, Ballston Spa, NY
My son graduated in Sept, but he is also leaving on the 21st. They will have a briefing about housing. There is privatized base housing run by Balfour Beatty at Naval Support Unit, Saratoga Springs - it is about 10 miles from the NPTU. facility - my son and a roomate are going to share a 2 bdroom unit there. A lot of nukes also rent at the Winner's Circle Apartments in Saratoga Springs. lists apartments and private rentals in the area approved for Navy. These are some links that I sent to my son:

So I'm trying to help my son find a place to live since he is now Grad and Go on Nov. 21.  Does anyone here know the address of the base?  We are trying to determine locations and where is too far away, etc.

Comment by 5Sailor1AirmanFam on July 28, 2014 at 9:43pm

Going to see my son and wondering where to stay??  Is there a Navy Lodge or Navy Inn up there? Any suggestions?

Comment by NJ Navy Mom Ship 03 Div 115 on April 19, 2014 at 4:25pm

If anyone has a sailor heading up to ballston spa and needs any furniture or household items, please message me and I'll forward my son's email address to you.  He just got his orders and will be leaving in less than 2 weeks.  He has quite a bit of furniture and other household items that he has no use for.  They were also renting a nice little 3 bedroom duplex that will be vacant as of May 15.  He has a queen size bed frame, mattress and box spring that was purchased last May too.

They got a little snow.

Comment by ktrsb CVN-75 on December 2, 2013 at 12:19pm

Looking for information on NPTU graduation for class 1302.  An older schedule says late Dec but I understand that's been delayed to Jan.  Anyone with good, specific information about this?

Comment by Jennifer G on August 8, 2013 at 1:33pm

My son is starting there mid Sept. 
I am at work and not supposed to be on there... can anyone tell me here - 

if he is in Goose Creek for Power School and graduates Aug 23rd, can he secure an apartment over the phone/internet/email or must he go there in person during his leave?

Comment by javajo50 (MM Power School 1103) on July 2, 2012 at 1:56pm

I would love to hear from any parent or sailor who can give me a little insight into being in the ELT part of Prototype.  My son is currently at the tail end of Prototype and will be starting ELT I think in August.  I know he's very excited about it as we are but I'm curious how this will impact is journey in the Navy as well as his future once in the civilian world?  Thanks in advance for anything ya'll can share with me :)
