General Training Reading Sample 30

Questions 1-5
Look at the information on the following reading passage about the use of vehicles in the University grounds.
In boxes 1-5 on your answer sheet write

TRUE   if the statement is true
FALSE   if the statement is false
NOT GIVEN   if the information is not given in the passage

Example                                                                                          Answer
The campus roads are not open to general members of the public.          TRUE

1  University employees do not need to pay for their parking permits.
2  Parking in Halls of Residence is handled by the Wardens of the Halls.
3  Having a University permit does not allow staff to park at Halls.
4  Parking permits cost £20 a year.
5  Students living in Hall do not need permission to park in Hall car parks.


The University grounds are private.

The University authorities only allow authorised members of the University, visitors and drivers of vehicles servicing the University to enter the grounds.

Members of staff who have paid the requisite fee and display the appropriate permit may bring a vehicle into the grounds. A University permit does not entitle them to park in Hall car parks, however, unless authorised by the Warden of the Hall concerned.

Students may not bring vehicles into the grounds during the working day unless they have been given special permission by the Security Officer and have paid for and are displaying an appropriate entry permit. Students living in Halls of Residence must obtain permission from the Warden to keep a motor vehicle at their residence.

Students are reminded that if they park a motor vehicle on University premises without a valid permit, they will be fined £20.

Can someone please be kind enough to explain how the answer to the second question is true? Because according to me, it's NOT GIVEN --> the statement just reads that students need to get permission from the warden of the hall (WOH) and it nowhere specifies that parking at Halls of residence is handled by WOH.
