TAMPA — University of South Florida students are protesting over not being able to study at the library late at night.

The school's library hours have been cut due to financial reasons.

WMNF Radio (http://bit.ly/1flQpZc ) reports the students hope to persuade the university to return to its previous schedule. The students are staging a "sit-out" overnight outside the shuttered library where they used to do late night studying on the Tampa campus.

The library is now open from 7:30 a.m. until midnight on Mondays through Thursdays and until 6 p.m. on Fridays. It was previously open 24 hours a day, five days a week.

School officials say some 400-500 students would study during the overnight hours - and more during finals.
