Tradewinds contains one- and two-bedroom apartments, designed to house either 2, 3, or 4 students each. There is one laundry room on the ground floor. Tradewinds is co-ed, with male and female students living in separate apartments. While there is no lobby or lounge per se, there is a large central courtyard that provides social space.

Tradewinds Apartments' doors are secured by a key access system, so only residents can access the building. Each individual room is key-locked for student security. Security cameras in outside and common areas are monitored 24 hours per day, and Campus Safety patrols campus regularly to ensure student security at all times.
