The status of grant-funded doctoral candidates depends on their discipline. Science researchers, for example, often work in research groups that provide work facilities, tools and other resources for all group members. If you are not a member of a research group, most grants do not automatically entitle you to a work facility or similar resources.
The rights and obligations of grant-funded researchers are always separately agreed. The agreement between an individual grant-funded researcher and the relevant University unit determines the rights and responsibilities related to work premises, laboratory facilities, keys and similar matters. A grant never constitutes an employment contract with the University, and a grant cannot be interpreted as a salary (or its part).
