Driving Directions

Arriving USCG students must first report to Courthouse Bay BB-270, Room 119:

BB-270 serves as the mandatory barracks for all inbound SMTC students.  Barracks assignment and scheduling are maintained by Mr. Anthony Brown who can be reached by phone during normal business hours at (910) 581-9433.

Vehicle Registration:

Although Marine Corps installations no longer issue DD Form 2200 (Vehicle Decals), all personnel operating a motor vehicle are still required to complete the vehicle registration process when assigned as permanent installation personnel or to a tenant unit on the installation.  You are required to provide a valid state registration certificate, proof of insurance, valid state driver's license, and safety inspections sticker (as applicable by state).  Since all personnel entering MCBCL will be subject to 100% Identification Card check, visitors or TDY personnel are not subject to the above and are not required to register their vehicles.

The Pass & Registration Office is located in the Camp Lejeune Visitor Center (Building 818) adjacent to the main gate.  Office hours are 0500 - 2100 Monday through Friday and 0700 - 1900 Saturday and Sunday.
