The students set up a barricade overnight after the demonstration.
They object to the marginalisation of the university leadership and the appointment of Attila Vidnyánszky to run the institution.
University student Panni Szurdi told ATV that the students will decide which leaders and instructors they will allow to enter and whom they would keep away from the university.
Gábor Németh, who recently resigned from his post as advisor to the rector, said the university is informed about basic questions from the media, which might lead to a loss of confidence.
The students held a forum at the university on Tuesday afternoon and then told reporters that from today they will hold press conferences regularly.
Their demands include guaranteed autonomy for the university, a repeal of the law on the change of model for the university, and the rejection of arbitrarily appointed new leadership.
They also demand the resignation of the present board of trustees and the restoration of the powers of the senate.
