The 22-year-old had gone to the tower with friends about 3am to get a better view of the city, according to police.
"It is with great sadness that I report that Sydney Monfries, a senior at Fordham College at Rose Hill, died today after sustaining a fall inside the Keating Clock tower in the early hours of the morning", school President Joseph McShane wrote in a letter sent to students Sunday evening and shared with The Post.
Eventually, she was airlifted out through a window then lowered to the ground to be taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. "Our hearts go out to Sydney's parents, and her family and friends - theirs is an unimaginable loss, and we share their grief".
The school said it was investigating how the students gained access to the tower.
The incident remains under investigation.

This used to be the case back then before Facebook made a decision to spurn off it into a full blown dedicated app. People used it like how we used Twitter DMs and it was called Inbox where we could privately chat with people.
School officials said Keating Hall and the door to its clock tower are always locked and only accessible by authorized staff members, and this was the first time anyone had fallen from the structure.
According to USA media reports, Ms Monfries slipped on her way up the tower's spiral staircase and was found by emergency services at about 3.17am. Another student, Anne, told the New York Post: "I think they were posting on Instagram when it happened".
Friends previously said she was eager to get a good picture of the city skyline to post on her Instagram page.
"I know you join me in keeping Sydney, and her family and loved ones, in your thoughts and prayers", Father McShane also said, reported the New York Times. But some said they have never heard of being allowed inside the tower. "If it is, it's kind of stupid", junior Linda Yenicag added to the CBS affiliate.
The university said they will confer a bachelor's degree upon Sydney posthumously.
