SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Dozens of Syracuse University students finally moved into their off-campus apartments after waiting nearly three weeks, but some can't celebrate just yet. 

The Marshall housing project was supposed to open August 20. But the spokesperson says construction delayed the move-in for 82 residents. 

While some were able to settle into their new homes this past weekend, others remain in the University Village apartments until September 28. Those students say they are frustrated with the company's lack of communication. 

"It was only in like the last 2 to 3 weeks of summer that we were told there would be a delay and how they were handling it, where we would be living and all of that," said Alex Ejimofor, a junior at Syracuse University. "We never knew about the situation. We didn't get proper pictures or what to expect. So, it was just you have to move in to see."

The Marshall declined to comment.

Despite the delay, students are still looking forward to their new home.

"It's going to be a state of the art building right in the center of campus and really will be a desirable location for a lot of students," said Jonah Haas, a Syracuse University student.

Students also lived in the Crowne Plaza Hotel before moving in.
