Inter-College War (ICW) is an annual event at which all the Colleges of Lochac meet for 4 days of camping (well actually indoors bunkhouses are usually provided), war, drinking, fighting, drinking, feasting, drinking, fighting, tomfoolery... etc. Each year a different University hosts ICW, and it's generally held during the midsemester break - perfect timing for the middle of winter! It can be a very amusing event, very rowdy, and tons of fun. To give you some idea, think of a large congregation of university students from all across Australia in garb and armour attempting to recreate pre-16th century, ultimately resulting in much entertainment, new friends, incriminating photos and an extraordinary hangover.

ICW began in June 1994, as a challenge between St Aldhelm and St Ursula during "The Defense of The Realm", an event held at the Crossroads site in Torlyon.

ICW II - Held at Torlyon, Amesbury (later to become St Augustine) won. ICW III - Held at the old Rowany Festival site by St Ursula, St Ursula won. ICW IV - Held in Innilgard by Blessed Herman, Blessed Herman won. ICW V - Held in Innilgard by Blessed Herman, St Ursula won. ICW VI - Held in Politarchopolis by St Aldhelm, St Ursula won. ICW VII - Held in Ynys Fawr by St Gildas, St Ursula won. ICW VIII - Held in Agaricus by St Malachy, Blessed Herman won. ICW IX - Held in Innilgard by Blessed Herman, St Ursula won. ICW X - Held in Politarchopolis by St Aldhelm, [[

2004 will be the 11th ICW, and is being hosted by the College of St Monica, in Melbourne, from July 8 - 12.
