Good question. The F-1 visa is not issued by a University. It is issued by US Department of State jurisdiction bound consulates abroad upon furnishing of evidence that you have reason to travel abroad for higher studies. In this case, the visa formality is already completed. All you have to do is travel with your new I-20, active Sevis ID, proof of admission and the passport with F-1 stamp.
