Since 2002, Dar Khalid is the house dedicated to the memory and legacy of Darat al Funun’s patron Khalid Shoman. It had been restored in 1995 to serve as quarters and studios for visiting artists.

Built in the 1920s also for the Abdo family (like the Blue House), it was once lived in by Sheikh Fouad al Khateeb, poet of the Great Arab Revolt and advisor at the Court of King Abdullah. Later, in the mid 1950s, Prime Minister Suleiman Nabulsi inhabited it.
