I highly recommend you get married or something because the barracks is a cesspool locked into a prison. Everything is broken down and disgusting. Can't even open the windows EVERYONE fails inspections repeatedly no matter how clean they are noise level is intolerable and the crime is bad to the point that they have roving night watch (E-5 and above). You have no cell service especially in your room and you have to pay for internet service. The best part is you get to choose from 2 garbage companies: Go-Wifi  and Comcast.
Off base is a different story. I can't speak for many places over the Buckman bridge but housing close to base is conveniently located so that traffic shouldn't be too much of an issue (but don't underestimate gate security to slow you down by about 20 minutes). This also comes with the added luxury however of being located close to the airfield and the train tracks which means you get to dance to the sound of plane engines and train whistles often enough. Jacksonville in general seems to be undergoing a lot of construction lately so it's typical to see a road has been blocked off for repair.

housing on base is very nice and it is easy to find nice housing off base in duval county and clay county as well. STAY AWAY FROM YELLOW WATER base HOUSING it is approximately 45 minutes away from NAS Jacksonville.
