Default Frameless Glass Shower

For those of you handy people out there....
I convinced my building to install a frameless glass shower that I will provide them with:

Does anyone know if the door jambs have to be screwed into a stud or can they just be screwed into the tile/drywall with anchors? I know the support bracket (see top of shower) will need to find a stud, but it is adjustable so shouldn't be a problem. If the door jambs need to be as well, then I will have to make sure studs are installed at the right distance from the corner. Any advice is appreciated.

regarding studs, not required to my knowledge, but check the manual for the exact model

the clear caulking you will seal it with is very stong - it won't move

if you have porcelain tile, you will need a special porcelain drill bit kit with a water reservoir - a ceramic bit won't work
