In these proceedings, we present the latest measurements of J/ψ and ϒ by the STAR experiment. The J/ψ and ϒ production measured in p+p collisions provide new baselines for similar measurements in Au+Au collisions, while the measurements in p+Au collisions can help quantify the cold nuclear matter effects. The J/ψ υ2 is measured in both U+U and Au+Au collisions to place constraints on the amount of J/ψ arising from recombination of deconfined charm and anti-charm pairs. Furthermore, the nuclear modification factors for ground and excited ϒ states as a function of transverse momentum and centrality are presented, and compared to those measured at the LHC as well as to theoretical calculations.
