We prove the existence of uniform attractors $\mathcal{A}_{\varepsilon}$ in the space $H^1(\mathbb{R}^N){\cap}L^p(\mathbb{R}^N)$ for the following non-autonomous nonclassical diffusion equations on $\mathbb{R}^N$, $$u_t-{\varepsilon}{\Delta}u_t-{\Delta}u+f(x,u)+{\lambda}u=g(x,t),\;{\varepsilon}{\in}(0,1]$$. The upper semicontinuity of the uniform attractors $\{\mathcal{A}_{\varepsilon}\}_{{\varepsilon}{\in}[0,1]}$ at ${\varepsilon}=0$ is also studied.
