Fall 2023 Arrival Info

As we prepare for the start of the Fall 2023 semester, Global Affairs has made arrangements to help international students arrive on campus and prepared a schedule for arrival times that align with WVU's Welcome Week!

Shuttle Service

WVU will be offering shuttles from Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) to locations on our Morgantown campus on Thursday, August 10 and Friday, August 11. The shuttle will run at 1:00 PM (EST) each day.

All incoming students should receive an arrival survey, which includes a section to register for the shuttle in July 2023. If you did not receive this survey, please contact

The shuttle will make two stops for drop-off: on the Evansdale Campus at the Evansdale Residential Complex (ERC Towers); and the Downtown Campus at the entrance to Stalnaker Hall. If you are living off-campus, you must make separate arrangements from either of these two drop-off locations, such as an Uber or taxi.


While you wait for the shuttle to the WVU campus, we have prepared a hospitality room with refreshments. The hospitality room is located at the Hyatt Regency Pittsburgh International Airport -- located at the airport. Once at the Hyatt, signs will direct you to the waiting area. The shuttle departs from the Hyatt, and a Global Affairs team member will greet you when the shuttle arrives.

If you are arriving before or after the scheduled shuttle dates, please explore options to Travel to WVU.

International Student Orientation

New International Student Orientation will be held on Monday, August 14 at 9:00 a.m. in the Gluck Theatre of the Mountainlair (1550 University Ave, Morgantown, WV).

Orientation will introduce you to West Virginia University and Morgantown and provide information on topics such as campus activities, health insurance requirements, managing your immigration and SEVIS record, U.S laws, and cultural adjustment.

Immediately after orientation, Global Affairs will host the International Student Welcome Picnic on Mountainlair Green. With music, food, games, the Welcome Picnic is a great way to meet the Global Affairs team and make new friends while learning more about WVU.
