MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - It’s move-in day for new students at West Virginia University.

More than 5,000 incoming freshmen and transfer students are arriving at their assigned university housing in Morgantown on Friday.

The university says nearly 30,000 students are enrolled for the fall semester. They’ll be making the trip back to WVU this weekend. Classes start on Monday.

WVU says students and their families can expect traffic delays and congestion around Morgantown, especially with road construction projects and detours along University and Beechurst avenues.

Marshall University in Huntington is opening its residence halls for freshman next Wednesday and for upperclassmen on Aug. 22. The first day of classes at Marshall is Aug. 24.
