COMPASS is a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS taking data since 2002. An important part of the physics programme is the study of the spin structure of the nucleon by measuring deep inelastic scattering of high energy muons off polarized or unpolarized nucleons. In particular COMPASS has given and is giving an important contribution to understand the role of parton transverse spin and transverse momentum, a recent topic on which a large international community is working. The most recent COMPASS measurements in this field and their relevance are here reviewed.
