Current Graduate Research Assistant in Seattle, WA, Washington State

Very little benefits for a graduate student. You have basic health insurance. Vacation, work from home, and leave all depends on which department and lab you are working in. Quarterly, you are required to pay $200-400 of "building fees", so really, you do not get any additional benefits since you are already paying upfront for many amenities.
